Inspired by the poetry of Gailmarie Pahmeier, this multi-media dance performance presented by Collateral & Co. Contemporary Dance Company and the Nevada Museum of Art explores the landscape of Nevada through choreography, photography, and film.
Gailmarie Pahmeier is a recipient of Nevada Art Council’s esteemed Project Fellowship Grant. Pahmeier has spent the last year traveling to various Nevada state parks, taking two-day residencies, composing narratives about her experience, focusing primarily on the people she encounters in these often remote places, with some attention paid to the landscape. Like Pahmeier, Collateral & Co. has traveled to three Nevada State Parks: Washoe Lake State Park, Wild Horse Reservoir, and Valley of Fire, and has taken photographic and videographic evidence of their time at these parks, exploring how their differences and similarities combine to make them inherently Nevadan.
Through Gailmarie Pahmeier’s poetry and the company’s own travels, Collateral & Co. will bring the vast and ever changing beauty of Nevada’s landscape to the Nevada Museum of Art for two nights of poetry, film and dance.
