Goat Island is a Chicago-based collaborative performance group that was founded in 1987. In their work they try to create a relationship with the audience in space that is different than the usual stage/audience relationship. Some of their movements are dance-like; some are motions we all use in our daily lives. The audience experiences the work somewhat like being within a sculpture that unfolds in time and space around them.
Goat Island will present a collaborative lecture, reading from July, one month in the “2002 — The Year Long Writing Project.” They will also be joined by Lucy Baldwyn, a UK-based filmmaker who will show a short film she made about the group.
