MeMoSa: "Babyface" by Kate Ladenheim x The RAD Lab RSVP
Come see "Babyface," an interactive machine-augmented solo responding to feminized tropes around innocence, servitude, cuteness and spectacle. The “cyborg” performer is outfitted with a pair of robotic angel wings that simultaneously create an effect of grandeur and awe, and a rigid, limiting characterization that becomes eerily burdensome over the course of the performance. This tension between aspiration and limitation fuels this work, and directly parallels the ways that women and machines are talked about, treated, and — in the case of machines — designed to look and behave.
Kate and RAD Lab director, Amy LaViers, will perform and welcome feedback on Babyface and on the experiences of anyone who has tried out the interactive robotic wings during their week-long installation, so make sure to stop by!
The event will take place Thursday November 11th, 2021 from 5:30-7pm in The Movement Lab
