Recipe: A Reading Test and Raw Material
NOTE: If ticket sales have ended, please come and get a ticket at the door!

PWNW Founder & Artistic Director Linda Austin performs new versions of two of her earliest solos: "Recipe: A Reading Test" (1983) and "Raw Material" (1985) as a mini-fundraiser for Performance Works programming.

Both solos reveal Linda's early fascination with puzzle-like structures and the intersections among and the life of language, the life of objects, and the life of the socialized (a-socialized) body. In "Recipe: A Reading Test," Austin spells out a 3-D rebus interrogating the artist/audience relationship with objects such as soup cans, Polaroid photos and paint. "Raw Material" pulls apart the text of a pornographic photo novella and juxtaposes the words with everyday objects and arbitrarily-composed movement, in the process yielding rhythms of language and body in which the seemingly sordid spills over into the beautiful.

"Recipe: A Reading Test" was originally performed in October 1983 at Fashion Moda in the Bronx as part of the benefit exhibition Food for the Soup Kitchens, and subsequently reprised at Storefront for Art & Architecture.

"Raw Material" was first performed at Kiva, a performance loft on Canal Street in 1985 as part of a self-produced split bill.

Proceeds go to support PWNW||Linda Austin Dance programs.
