Moving Through Loneliness @ the Santa Cruz MAH
Moving Through Loneliness is part of We're Still Here: Stories of Seniors & Isolation, which was on view from April 2019 - January 2020 at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. The full exhibition moves to the Marin Civic Center and San Francisco Public Library, dates to be announced.
A ten minute festival edit of the film portion of our installation premiered on April 4th 2020 at the Moving Body-Moving Image Festival, presented by Barnard College's Movement Lab. The festival was held online because of COVID-19 social distancing protocols.
Over a period of six months we collaborated with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History and a wonderful cohort of seniors and advocates to create an installation which featured video (all the time) and live performance (some of the time).
We worked with an extraordinary group of collaborators, including Kate Edmunds (Installation Design), Mara Milam, (Filmmaker), Jonathan Segel (Music/Sound Score), and an amazing group of performers: RD Bolam, Tom Brady, Lisa Brenner, Bonnie Brenn-White, Angela Chambers, Julia Daniel, Francis Garciá, Eduardo Izquierdo, David King, Collette Kollewe, Ana Marden, Carol McDowell, Lyndia McGauhey, Claire Melbourne, Thomas Ng, Rita Rivera, Penny Sablove, Robbie Schoen, Ann Simonton, Cynthia Strauss, and Rachel Van Dessel.

THE ALL JOAN SHOW: Isadora Duncan Award Nomination
The duet from small variations, performed by Julia Daniel and Collette Kollewe, was nominated for an Isadora Duncan Award for Outstanding Achievement in Performance - Ensemble. The award ceremony, which was scheduled for March 23, 2020, has been postponed because of COVID-19 social distancing protocols.
During the fall of 2018 Cid Pearlman Performance celebrated their longstanding collaboration with cellist/composer Joan Jeanrenaud in an evening of four works: Strange Toys, small variations, Your Body is Not a Shark, and the world premiere of Wasps & Ladybugs.
The earliest piece on the program, Strange Toys, had its New York premiere at the Joyce Soho in 2004. Nominated for two Los Angeles Horton Awards, small variations premiered as a 30-minute sextet in 2006 in Los Angeles. Your Body is Not a Shark, an evening-length work created with poet Denise Leto, premiered at ODC Theater in San Francisco in 2013.
