We need $2,000 to meet our goal with 15 days left.
A holla out to recent donors Kip Keene, Jody Oberfelder and Satoshi Haga, who have gotten us one third nearer to our goal. Your donations will go towards performers’ rehearsal and performance fees.
Reperformance of “Footsteps on the…” created and performed by Karen Bernard in 1993 with costume by Liz Prince and deconstructed popular music by Brooks Williams. Reperformance is by Stacy Lynn Smith.
“Karen’s work is subtle in a way that makes it much harder to execute than it looks. But more and more the work is in my body, allowing me to loosen up and have fun with it. Karen’s support throughout the process has been invaluable.”

Triskelion Arts presents Karen Bernard/Solo, a two part program at 8 PM on October 17 and 19. The first piece, 1993-1996 It Could Have Been Different, contains excerpts from four works that Bernard created from 1993-1996. Reperformances are by Donna Costello, Jil Guyon, Ryan Migge, Lisa Parra and Stacy Lynn Smith.
The second piece is the premiere of Bernard’s Suspending and Other Tricks follows: We are taken on a voyeuristic journey, sharing a birds-eye view from outside an arched window to the inside of a room where Bernard grapples with the limitations of aging and mortality.
Original “Work” created and performed by Karen Bernard in 1993. Reperformance is by Donna Costello with costume by Liz Prince and music by Wendy Chambers.
“I relate to the constant one direction focus one has in life with what needs to be done and the hardship, the repetitiveness, the resignation and even the joy in it all. I feel like I have only scratched the surface of where the piece can take me and I look forward to this last month of rehearsal to find my own journey along Karen’s path.”
