August 6, 2018 – August 10, 2018

As a choreographer, Evans interrogates dance’s complex history and structure with an exciting, expansive sense of the art form. In Be My Muse, Evans will occupy the Hirshhorn’s circular gallery forfive days with a series of 49-minute performances. For each performance, she will expose her process to a series of interventions and opinions from museum visitors, producing an open choreography regulated both by time and the intimate, momentary exchanges between two people. Be My Muse examines the construction of a solo performance while redefining expressions of power, control, dominance, submission, and the authority of the artist.
