The Trident Live Art Series moves off-site in partnership with the Cape Ann Museum to present Sphere, a performative installation for the historic White-Ellery House in Gloucester, built in 1710.

In this installation, Trident Live Art Series Director Sarah Slifer Swift explores women’s social and political power through the lens of the historic house. Using movement, film, and sound, performers will examine the complexities of labor, value, and respect, as they have been gained, lost or changed over time.

The creative team is Sarah Slifer Swift, Director/Choreographer; Kristen Miller, Composer; Andrea Minicozzi, Filmmaker; and thirteen performers creating live, interactive performance.

From the Cape Ann Museum:

An ongoing series of one-day contemporary art installations at the Historic White-Ellery House

The White-Ellery House, located at 245 Washington Street in Gloucester at the Route 128 Grant Circle Rotary, was built in 1710 and is one of just a handful of First Period houses in Eastern Massachusetts that survives to this day. Unlike other structures of this period, the largely unfurnished house has had very few interior alterations over the years. Stepping inside today, visitors enter much the same house they would have 300 years ago. Parking is available off Poplar Street in the field behind the house.
