For Immediate Release

Creatures of Habitat Physical Poetry Public Performance Project announces the showing of Auto Mobile Body Works, original projections and live performance in a select few open spaces in the city of Northampton on Friday September 6th beginning at 7:30p. Audience participants are asked to meet at the Round House parking lot dressed to be outside and prepared to travel. The event cost is by donation.

Auto Mobile Body Works, conceived and directed by action-based dance artist Stefanie Weber, utilizes movement, video, vehicles and outdoor paved spaces to create a site-specific series of scenes that both imagine and reveal an integration of human and auto bodies. Weber, a native of Pittsfield, MA began the Creatures of Habitat in 2001 to artistically explore connections between behavior, environment and a collective psyche she believes humans share with the rest of nature. Projection video made for Auto Mobile Body Works was done in collaboration with Michael Sinopoli of Greylock Productions. Music is used courtesy of Thomas White/Electric Soft Parade. Performers include: Ione Beauchamp, Diane Firtell, Dawn Meltzer, Shira Wohlberg and Stefanie Weber. Auto Mobile Body Works is supported in part by Dana Bixby Architecture and a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local arts council which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
