Untitled (2008), featuring Ralph Lemon and Okwui Okpokwasili
New York–based artist Ralph Lemon (American, born 1952) works across the disciplines of dance, film, and visual arts. In Untitled (2008), which Lemon created for himself and long-time collaborator Okwui Okpokwasili (American, b. 1972), he explores the body’s ability to push beyond technique and training, exhaustion and exhilaration, to movements unfettered by control, rationality, and reflex. The result is a quiet, harrowing duet that investigates connection and division between two bodies. Program is approximately 40 minutes.
