A Performance by Peter Hernandez and John-Elio Reitman
They’re dancing down down down down
Can’t see the ground ground ground ground
Peter Hernandez and John-Elio Reitman perform a series of songs, dances, and texts inspired by climate change, modern devices, and PAM’s architectural elements. The performance employs mirrored gestures and harmonized vocals, producing an interior window to the outside world through a triptych of scenes. The audience is invited to journey into PAM’s depths, to the streetlights that meet the window, and into the future.
Peter Hernandez, b. 1990, is a musician and performer based in Los Angeles, CA. He is the founder and director of Practical Records, an independent record label for California’s QTPOC communities. He creates music and dance performances as Julius Smack. His work concerns modernity, ancient philosophies, and indigenous spirituality, informed through the lived experience as a descendent of the Pascua Yaqui tribe raised in Silicon Valley.
John-Elio Reitman, b. 1990, is a guest on the unceded territories of the Lenape and Canarsee peoples. His current research connects [the body] + [time] + [climate] in varying combinations and intensities, as if triangulating cellphone towers to place a call.
