The Trident Live Art Series is pleased to present me is you (the space between us and them), an installation and dance performance on Saturday, March 19, at 7:30pm.

Doors will open at 7:30pm, when guests may explore an interactive installation in the Vault Room by Alexander Davis. The related dance performance will begin at 8:00pm and last 20–30 minutes. Afterward, guests are invited to remain for light refreshments and informal conversation.

Artist Irene Hsi’s performance piece is an exploration of performance as empathetic exchange. In the dance, four people perform one person’s bodily commentary on a transformative past experience.

Walk-in guests are welcome. The capacity for guests varies with the performance configuration and is not known in advance. A conservative, fixed number of seats are designated for reservations. To reserve seats, please

Unreserved guests are usually accommodated comfortably: they will be invited to occupy empty seats at the scheduled start time. When seats are fully occupied, standing room and sometimes floor seating are normally available.

If unforeseen circumstances require postponement or cancellation, notices will be posted on the gallery website and social media (Facebook and Twitter).
