You can spend a Saturday afternoon with movement-based theatre duo Lisa Fay and Jeff Glassman on September 16th from noon to 3:30 p.m. at Krannert Art Museum. Their artist talk and workshop will take place in the Hood Classroom on the lower level of the museum. Their work is described in this way on the KAM website:

They are known for applying complex composed structures to ordinary daily human behavior and originating the performance techniques required for these compositions to manifest in the medium of live theatre—embodied composition. 

The results, ranging from humorous and disarming to mesmerizing and disorienting, arise as metaphors for social processes. 

Their appearance is an extension of the Pattern and Process exhibition, comprised of pieces from KAM’s 20th and 21st century collections, featuring a variety of artists. The exhibition was featured in February’s Five things in Arts.
