** The monthly To Remember: The AMP Virtual Arts Series is co-presented with The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway. **
Performances in response to HIV/AIDS by local dancers David Rue, Randy Ford, Marco Farroni, and Christopher D’Ariano kick off the program.
Film director and dancer Chris Mason Johnson shares clips from his film TEST, which is set in 1985 and centers on a San Francisco dance company, and discusses issues many dancers faced in the early years of the AIDS epidemic.
Ian Horvath created his final work NO DOMINION just before he himself died from AIDS. A recreation of the work filmed for a documentary on the life of Horvath closes the program, performed by six male dancers from PNB and companies across the country.
About the Series:
The monthly series hopes to bring anticipation and awareness of The AMP’s completion later this year. Located along the plaza above the Capitol Hill Link light rail station and Cal Anderson Park, each installation of The AMP will be designed to take visitors through an emotional and historic journey related to the AIDS epidemic in Seattle/King County from the early 1980s to today. These works of physical and digital art, created by artists of different backgrounds and perspectives, will tell stories of remembrance, reflection, creativity, and action surrounding the AIDS crisis and the community’s ongoing response. An official dedication will be scheduled around World AIDS Day on December 1, 2020.
About The AMP:
The AMP is a community-driven and collaboratively funded project that uses public art to create a physical place for remembrance and reflection, utilizes technology to share stories about the AIDS epidemic and the diverse community responses to the crisis and provides a call to action to end HIV/AIDS as well as the stigma and discrimination associated with it. The AMP offers visitors opportunities for meaningful participation in their projects, which serve as a reminder of the collective need to be active, remain vigilant, and stand ready to fight scapegoating and discrimination however and whenever they may arise.
