FOR THE GLORY
by Mica Sigourney and Larry Arrington
A performance concept presented by OX. In the opening monologue Sigourney announces to the audience that the performance has already happened. The performance was the transference of artist fees Sigourney had been awarded by different granting organizations to three other artists: Maryam Rostami, Xandra Ibarra and Sarah Biscarra- Dilley. Sigourney had secured funds to make a performance that addressed the privileging of white male bodies on stage and in American society.
The rules of the exchange/performance:
1. Each artist receive the funds.
2. Each artist meet with Sigourney once a month.
3. Each artist allowed the use of their names in promotion.
Each of the other artists decided to present their own works at For the Glory, though these works were not the content of the performance For the Glory, which ended at the end of Sigourney's opening monologue.
LAURA prefers being called LARRY. She choreographs/collaborates in San Francisco with a wide range of artists including Jesse Hewit, Rachael Dichter, Mica Sigourney, Oscar Tidd, Keith Hennessy, and Amara Tabor-Smith.
