Hubbard Street Stairwell Performance
3-4p / (meet at the elevator on the 2nd floor anytime between 3p and 4p. Performance will begin on the 10th floor)
Jenna Pollack and E.LEE produce experiential events spanning visual art, dance, and narrative.  For this piece, the audience will join the dancers of Hubbard Street Professional Program as they descend down the north staircase of the Logan Center.  The piece will explore the complexity of currency as it  affords, denies, and perpetuates our everyday rhythms.  Through the subversion of expectations and co-authorship with the architecture, the guests will be an integral part of raising questions of a fantasy land perhaps not as far from home.
