Karen Krolak An Animated Edition of the Dictionary of Negative Space
April 13 | 8:00pm

By Dance Complex I-ARE Artist Karen Krolak

During her I-ARE residency at the Dance Complex, Karen Krolak (Artistic Director & co-founder of Monkeyhouse) delves into the daunting terrain of illustrating entries in her Dictionary of Negative Space (www.dictionaryofnegativespace.com). Inspired by the car accident that killed her mother, father, and older brother in 2012, the Dictionary of Negative Space examines the lacy spaces within the English language, the vast chasms of unnamed ideas related to mourning, trauma, and repair. Krolak will curate an interdisciplinary concert of discussing, digressing, and dancing about loss by collaborating with choreographers, poets, storytellers, and visual artists. Other iterations of the Dictionary of Negative Space have been presented at Onstage Dance, Malden, MA; Sierra Nevada College, Incline Village, NV; Kelwood Contemporary Art, Baton Rouge, LA; Boston University Center for the Humanities, Boston, MA; and the CICA Museum, Gimpo, Korea. Do not despair. This is not the dusty dictionary of your youth. Ordinary people just like you have raved: “I love the format of the dictionary. I love that it is so inclusive of the experiences of so many people. I love that it is an evolving work, covering so much more than words. It is a heroic undertaking.” – Joan “Generous and familiar and devastating and seemingly finite but actually a web of never ending connections and circles (like grief itself).” – Jean Ann
