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.

One thousand, nine hundred and ten. Twelve thousand, seven hundred and ninety three. Five. Five hundred. Three hundred and forty thousand. One hundred thousand. Six eight thousand. Four point seven percent. One point two percent. Three point eight percent. Three thousand one hundred and forty. Thirty one thousand. Fifty nine thousand. Six billion, eight hundred and eleven million. Seven hundred and eleven billion, four hundred and twenty one million. Eight hundred and seventy eight million.
Participants wrote the numbers by jumping up as high as they could. And they wrote them as large as they could. Attention was paid to the jump, not the writing. They did not erase or edit. It was okay if the numbers overlapped. And they didn’t have to go from left to right. They wrote the numbers in whatever medium they desired. Sharpee was fine. Charcoal was fine. Ideally the writing instrument produced black marks. As many people as desired were used. And these people did this either before or at the opening. The point here was not legibility but difficulty. Yet the piece was not just the jumping, it was also the results. What was created was a collection of number-referencing abstract marks.
