Anna Reyes Dance in collaboration with Tamara Al-Mashouk
The Good Parts of Being Alive explores how outside influences shift the behavior between two people in love. Video and live performance collide when two of Boston’s boldest emerging artists—Anna Reyes, dance & Tamara Al-Mashouk, video art come together. Despite outside factors shaping shared connections, each individual has his/her unique experience in a romantic relationship. During The Good Parts of Being Alive, life mirrors art, when the audience traverses its own unique relationship with the piece as they walk through the Mills Gallery and experience multiple layers of the visual, physical and emotional.

Carey McKinley, dance theatre in collaboration with Carolyn Lewenberg, sculptor
Bittersweet is how life feels from one moment to the next. A shift in perspective, morphing sensations, bitter turned sweet or the other way around, and the all-confounding, both bitter and sweet at once. Choreographer Carey McKinley and sculptor Carolyn Lewenberg will create and ultimately destroy, an environment using bittersweet vines, bodies and moving images.
