Joining VIVA! for the first time, OBORO invited curator Sarah Watson to propose a project about performance and archive. Watson is bringing to Montreal American performer and choreographer Sara Wookey to give a transmission of Yvonne Rainer's piece Trio A. Wookey is one of four people certified by Rainer to teach this piece from 1966 and ensure its longevity.
From October 3 to 7 at Studio 303, American performer and choreograher Sara Wookey will guide participants in the re-construction and preservation of Yvonne Rainer's historical performance work Trio A.
