This event has ended.

Renowned Egyptian-born multimedia artist Susan Hefuna and contemporary Italian choreographer Luca Veggetti will collaborate on an original two-part performance commissioned by The Drawing Center. Notationotations explores line as an extension of the body in motion. The performance will begin with Hefuna making spontaneous drawings in white sand, which Veggetti will respond to through gesture, creating his own dynamic marks that erase the original drawn surface. The second section will repeat this process, this time using white chalk on the floor and adding an additional dancer. Through a simultaneously additive and reductive mark-making process, the resulting traceries will be suggestive of dichotomies between absence/presence and visibility/invisibility. The performance will also include Hefuna’s new video of a Manhattan intersection, which explores movement as something both rehearsed and habitual. A new series of Hefuna’s drawings made during the rehearsal process will also be on view in the Drawing Room.
