Modern Living, a new project by Gerard & Kelly, explores themes of queer intimacy
and domestic space within legacies of modernist architecture. The project unfolds
in two chapters, beginning with performances at the Schindler House in West
Hollywood from January 9-10, 2016, and continuing at The Glass House in New
Canaan, CT, in May 2016.
The Schindler House, built in 1922 by Rudolph M. Schindler, housed two families
who shared a kitchen, garden, and other common spaces—an early example of
communal living. The Glass House famously sheltered its architect Philip Johnson
and his partner, David Whitney, in a relationship that preceded the Stonewall
rebellion. Working with the nine dancers of LA Dance Project, Gerard & Kelly create
a performance score that re-imagines the homes as sites of experiments in living,
positing architecture as choreography for relationships.
Modern Living is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The project received support from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
