Nicole LeGette and Erica Mott create a performance piece in conjunction with the sculptures of Petah Coyne.

July 15 -16, 2005, Chicago Cultural Center, Sydney R. Yates Gallery, 4th floor

Nicole LeGette and Erica Mott created a performance piece involving dancers encased in hundreds of plastic bags. They weaved three different elements together: the body, the synthetic, and the natural using Butoh, an avant-garde Japanese dance style. The event was presented in conjuction with a sculpture and photography exhibit, “Petah Coyne: Above and Beneath the Skin,” at the Sidney Yates Gallery in the Chicago Cultural Center. What To Forget was also presented on July 8th at 2 p.m. in the Lurie Garden of Millennium Park. *
