I’ll Draw a Line
Inspired in part by my grandmother’s stories of wartime recession, when women drew lines on their legs to simulate stockings they couldn’t afford. At the D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival, the work was presented as an interactive performance installation by an artist, three dancers and a mannequin that loses the thread but draws the line.
By Marie Christine Katz . Performed by Laura Ward (Octavia Cup) Shenelle Easton Foster,Valerie Norman Ornstein and Marie Christine Katz.
The work was performed on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday I spent the afternoon telling and gathering passerby’s stories of their grandmothers.
This led to My Favorite Grandmother project. Please see Blog featured in this web site.
