Tanya Lukin Linklater: Give me an A!


The Gallery will also feature Tanya Lukin Linklater’s “Give me an A!” on May 7th @ 7 pm.

The cheerleader is an intermediary or conduit, rallying crowds through chants, cheers, dance routines & jumps, directing the attention of the crowd to sports-related spectacle. Similarly, Alutiiq (Alaska Native) dancers are conduits who rally community members through song, dance, and Alutiiq language to engage with cosmology. Lukin Linklater’s new performance engages both through a practice that is simultaneously deconstructive and reconstructive.
