Brendan Fernandes, Safely (2017)

January 13, 2018 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Fort Mason Chapel
San Francisco, CA 94109 United States
+ Google Map

As part of his commission for Sanctuary, Brendan Fernandes will present a site-specific durational performance exploring themes of reverence and sacred space. Titled Safely, the performance utilizes improvisational choreography to evoke the physical act of cleaning and the fallen body, suggesting larger notions of devotion, humility, trauma, and safety. Meditative cleaning gestures will activate the rugs in Sanctuary into locales of contemplative devotion. The gesture of falling—antithetical to more traditional notions of dance—suggests harm or violence against vulnerable bodies. The rugs will thus become indexical sites where the body meets the ground, or spaces of soft refuge where the body is welcomed and protected. A sanctuary.
