In The Traveller and the Thief, Austin and Hankins collapse, expand, and steal time as they travel across landscapes filled with seemingly incongruous concepts, structures, desires, and energies. Inspired by surrealist artists Gertrude Abercrombie and Leonora Carrington, and the “uncanny fictive spaces” in the writing of Jen George, they juxtapose movement, object, words, and song to celebrate (or is it bemoan?) the unstable and precarious grounds of existence. This performance will be followed by a post-performance discussion moderated by Associate Professor of Art M. Acuff.
