Head Hi presents The Daily Mirror 1976/2022

  • 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm | Tuesday December 13, 2022
  • Atrium | Ace Hotel Brooklyn
  • 252 Schermerhorn St.

Head Hi is thrilled to present a live performance at Ace Hotel Brooklyn featuring the choreography of dancers Wendy Perron and Morgan Griffin with film and photography by Babette Mangolte. Join us for this incredible event, a collaboration developed over the past two years, followed by a celebration with drinks and tunes in the lounge.

In 1976, downtown New York dancer and choreographer Wendy Perron began an accumulating project, using dance as a way of journaling; her movement reflecting the interior and exterior landscape of the day. She titled it The Daily Mirror. In 2021, upon recently uncovering the only documentation of this practice, photos by French cinematographer Babette Mangolte, Perron asked dancer Morgan Griffin to re-create the work with these images as source material and provide it a new life and perspective through another dancing body. As intended, the work will be passed on to this next generation and the living archive continued through Mangolte’s photographic documentation.

A limited edition artist book has been published for the occasion and will be available for purchase at the event.

 

  • Doors open at 7:00pm.
  • Performance starts at 7:30pm.
  • Post performance celebration in the lounge at 8:30pm.
