Inheritance is defined by what one receives—be it a “gift,” a “burden” or both—depending on the context. Inheritance is commonly used to refer to monetary or physical property that is passed from one generation to the next, as well as the physical attributes and genetic qualities received from one’s parents.

The Weight of Inheritance brings together four artists to explore, through performance art, the concept of inheritance as it relates to gender, class, race, ethnicity, and how these classifications fit within cultural and economic structures (e.g., art history, history, capitalism, politics). With an emphasis on process, guest artists will collectively and individually consider how the body, movement and objects carry the weight of inheritance. The centrality of the body in performance art makes it a key form through which to critically engage the idea of inheritance.

Each artist’s diverse practice and formative perspectives will enhance the address of “inheritance” and its “weight.”

Adobo-Fish-Sauce
Curated by Anthony Febo and Ricky Orng
The Mills Gallery
February 2019

A Puerto Rican and Cambodian walk into a kitchen. The kitchen is your heart. The food is made with food. The food is sometimes poems. Either way you are fed. Adobo-Fish-Sauce is an active choice to celebrate in the face of bitterness. It is responding to “Go back to where you come from!” by bringing where they come from right to you. The show fuses spoken word, cooking, music, crying and laughing to create a one of a kind experience that can’t be found in any restaurant, open mic or art gallery.

Curators Anthony Febo and Ricky Orng will bring Adobo-Fish-Sauce to the Mills Gallery for live-in/work-in sessions during the day and performances at night. They will curate their space to be a work/live studio that gallery attendees may watch and interact with them and the space. By the end of their residency, they will have performed their show, facilitated a series of talk backs that they are calling House Warmings, and will have written and produced a whole new show that they will debut on their final night.

Adobo-Fish-Sauce will spend their residency exploring themes such as making home, creating space for healing and forgiveness and finding joy.

How can the purest sensory memories influence one’s future? Explore this idea in Lavender—a multi-sensory musical performance that explores how early experiences with lavender’s color and fragrance shaped trajectories and influenced decisions. The performance will include components of lavender through song, spoken-word, fragrance, simple projections, customized refreshments and movement.

Audrey Harrer is an alt-chamber composer/vocalist/harpist. She collaborates with chamber groups, experiments with music technologists, and works in music education. She finds clever ways to connect lyric and gesture and is particularly interested in the space where music and drama collide.
