Molly Lieber + Eleanor Smith
“These women are tied together. One would carry the other across a desert, it seems, if they didn’t kill each other first.” - The New York Times
Basketball reinvents past shames as colorful, sculptural, and textural expressions. Engulfing one another with fully embodied presence, Lieber and Smith move backward and forward through time and space in a dreamlike reimagining of personal histories. Improvisation acts as an empowerment of physicality and emotionality, viscerally felt through observing the intimate, raw nature of their bodies in space.
