TRAMMEL is a durational performance which explores the work of real-time documentation of live movement as it unfolds over time. The work comes out of an ongoing collaboration between dancer/choreographer Abby Crain and writer/performer David Buuck, its current manifestation engaged with the architecture and “rehearsal aesthetics” of their Milk Bar Projects Room residency. You are invited to arrive at the Milk Bar Project Room anytime during the performance, as it will be unfolding and accreting over three hours each Sunday.
