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 Wendy Perron and Morgan Griffin  with film and photography by Babette Mangolte.

Join us for this event, a collaboration developed over the past year, followed by drinks and guest DJ in the lounge. In 1976, downtown New York dancer/choreographer Wendy Perron began an accumulating project, creating movement every day that reflected the interior and exterior landscape of that day. She titled it The Daily Mirror. In 2021, upon recently uncovering the only documentation of this practice, five pages of photos by French cinematographer Babette Mangolte, Perron asked dancer Morgan Griffin to re-imagine the work with these images as source material and provide it a new life 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.
