"Ordinary Devotions" created and performed by PWNW Director Linda Austin, is a meditation-in-action on the ordinary/extraordinary life of the body, a tactile and tender apprehension of the world to hand. An intimate drama of gesture and sensation unfolds alongside a bracingly unorthodox use of objects: e.g. a white vinyl tarp, a twig a lamp, cassette tapes, and multiple spools of thread. These objects and the body animating them co-exist in a space at once sculptural, time-based, and performative. Throughout, task-like activity yields to poetically and emotionally-charged movement/text/image evoking vulnerability and hints of mortality. Aural landscapes based on field recordings by Juniana Lanning also explore the transformative potential of material existence. Video by Kelly Rauer.
