The Virtual Double: A Screening and discussion with Jillian Peña


Friday April 15th 7-9pm


Join us for an informal screening and discussion with dance and video artist Jillian Peña. Following in the steps of the Greek chorus, the corps de ballet and the Rockettes, dance artist Jillian Peña sought to create a homogenous group of dancers to work with. Finding it impossible, Jillian turned to video and found perfect unison of bodies using self-multiplication. In her program, Reflection Jillian will show the earliest and the most recent of her works employing this aesthetic ideal. She will also screen works which have inspired her in this process.


Jillian Peña’s art is primarily concerned with confusion and desire between self and other. Her work is in dialogue with psychoanalysis, queer theory, pop media, and spirituality. She has been presented internationally, including at Dance Theater Workshop and The Kitchen in New York, Akademie der Kunste Berlin, Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow, International Festival of Contemporary Art Slovenia, and Mix Brazil Sao Paulo. jillianpena.com
