Exhibition Description

Suzanne Harris stretched huge rubber strips between the columns; she and Rachel Lew “did this great bouncing dance against the rubber bands.” (Caroline Goodman) Harris also built sculpture which enabled the performers to move in mid-air. “Swinging,” choreographed by Rachel Lew, made use of this set.
