Allay Alight (with undertow)

Allay Alight (with undertow)

The original version, Allay Alight, was performed at the Berkeley Art Museum in 2012. This solo performance occurred in the same physical space as James Lee Byars’ Perfect Square.  The first line of paper laid out for his performance acted as the structure for Wiegmann’s work some 38 years later.  As an alterable and transportable piece, iterations have also been performed at the center line of a soccer field and along the East River in NYC.

30 minutes, performed on June 22nd, 2013 at 356 Mission, Los Angeles
