Kim Baraka: Struction

“Struction” is an ode to all of us who go through the cycle of building, destroying, and rebuilding again and again. Rebuilding from psychological or physical chaos, loss of ideals and loved ones, ruins of war, questionings of identity and relation to the world… It is inevitable that one has to be scattered into pieces to stand taller and wider.

Lightlab Performance Series was founded in 2013 by Taylor Knight and David Bernabo as an event series meant to encourage local dance and performance artists to experiment with form, composition, improvisation, and context. After three years of successful events with local and national artists, the series continues to present experiments and has expanded to include music performance, video screenings, art lectures, and fake lectures. In late 2014, a residency program was introduced that offered rehearsal space, connections to local dancers, and a performance slot at a Lightlab event. Lightlab is currently curated by Taylor Knight, David Bernabo, and Anna Thompson.
