Call Your Mom showed two parts of a four-channel collaborative embroidery video installation entitled Stay Still Baby Okay? This work will be featured in the upcoming performance installation, Household.
The Call Your Mom installation in Doing Things For Other People revisits a segment from our 2016 show, THIS CLOSE. The piece, Don't Touch Me, explores ways in which people navigate space and distinguish what we see as personal from that which is communal. It humorously pokes at spacial frustration and dysfunction. By limiting their vocabulary, Call Your Mom is able to communicate these ideas in a way that is physically playful and verbally succinct. This adaptation is a sculptural exploration of those same ideas.
A one-night art exhibition exploring the convergence of senses across mediums. Call Your Mom will be showing the screen dance Powerplay and accompanying it with live, interactive performance.

On April 1-2, 2016, artists of all mediums and genres from the Ann Arbor community will perform and/or exhibit their art at the Yellow Barn. Art forms will include music, dance, poetry, film, theater, and visual art. Threads will be featuring the University Musical Society’s (UMS) 2015-2016 Artists in Residence in addition to 48 performances over the two days. The festival is a celebration and coming together of the beautiful community of people that call Ann Arbor home. We hope that you will join us! This is a festival of all arts, the coming together of expression and ideas, people and place. This is about sharing and supporting. Our identity as a community is reflected in the art we make."
This Close is Call Your Mom's second original multimedia performance.
Come see Call Your Mom poke at the question of whether we can ever understand each other, and what that means for audiences (you) and performers (us)! Integrating humor, dance and design, we create disorder and ask you not to shy away.
