“Temporary Housing,” was a collaborative art performance featuring choreographer Barbara Hofrenning and Requests Dance Company, visual artists Carol Ivey and Janet Felsten, and composers Tina Marsh and Ruth Huber. “Temporary Housing” was the last event in Women & Their Work’s Spring Performance Art Series.
“Temporary Housing” explored the emotional and intellectual housing in which individuals operate and through which they relate to others. Choreographer Hofrenning and Requests Dance Company interpreted the changes in this belief system “housing” brought about by modern times, the nuclear age.
Original music by Ruth Huber and visual design by Carol Ivey and Janet Felsten, which reflected their artistic visions of “Temporary Housing,” accompanied the dance.
This was the second collaborative performance in which Hofrenning, Requests Dance Company, and Ivey have worked together. Their 1983 production, “Moonstruck,” featured original dance and music based on a series of paintings by Ivey.
