Years in the making, Tesseract brings together video artist Charles Atlas with dancer/choreographers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener in a collaboration that pushes the boundaries of space, time, and energy. Part dance, part 3D film, and part science-fiction, the show is divided into six chapters that display a different world, visually and energetically, with unique rules dictating the type of movements for each section. The resulting experience is a densely layered, visually stunning alternative universe drawn from numerous influences and collaborations. In advance of the work’s performances at Walker Art Center Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchell provided commentary on a selection of film stills, performance images, and behind-the-scenes photos from the making of Tesseract to provide a glimpse into multiple dimensions of the work.
