A Piece about… Shopping
A performance piece
by Kristina Skovby
September 20-24th 2010

A Piece About…Shopping? is a performance by Kristina Skovby which explores the ordinary  repetition of life, and conversely, the continuous challenges that individualize and energize the human experience. This tale is of a woman’s  initially habitual visit to the mall, and the  anomalous turn it takes when she meets with a stubborn shopping cart. The unexpected shift in the nature of this expedition invites a series of obstacles, success’s and failures.

Kristina Skovby is a performance artist from Denmark and a former student of the Martha Graham School where she studied repertory with Pearl Lang. She recently finished in a production by InOktober at Here Arts Center in Manhattan, and is currently working with Nu Dance Theater on a site specific performance for the Botanical Garden on East 6th Street. Her own performance work has been presented at the LAB, Triskelion Arts Aldous Theater in Brooklyn, Gowanus Arts Building, The Brecht Forum, and Spinvox street events in NYC and San Francisco.
