A new work by Salt Horse

World premiere live performance

In Salt Horse’s new work, Color Field, unique and often-unseen spaces are activated throughout Northwest Film Forum’s venue, generating kinetic architectures of shape, color and form.  

Images and scenarios arise and dissolve—a large eye of light soars above the horizon, a man emerges fully and then disappears in plain sight, and a blackened corner harbors a hovering body.  The piece begins in an installation of site-specific performances throughout the Forum, and then collects into the theater, where these images merge and abstract through the amplification of design, color, physicality and sonic texturing. 

Abstract Expressionist painters such as Stella, Frankenthaler and Gorky are sources of inspiration for Color Field. Joining Salt Horse (Corrie Befort, Beth Graczyk, and Angelina Baldoz) is a vibrant cast of dancers including Ariana Bird, Belle Wolf, Kathleen Hunt and Steven Gomez. Special ticket pricing: $12/Film Forum members, $15/General admission.

Live at the Film Forum is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, ArtsFund, 4Culture, Office of Arts & Culture, Seattle, and the Washington State Arts Commission. Thank you to our media sponsors, KUOW 94.9 and The Stranger.
