The Tetley

Samuel Hertz Residency: Immersion


Join us for an evening of participatory Deep Time slow dancing, developing movement practices, sensitivities towards, and openness to large-scale Earth events — the slow grind of a tectonic plate, and the tremble of atmospheric pressure systems. Partners will be singular or multiple, human and nonhuman, and will include architectural formations of the space, plants, crystals, and other visible and invisible objects. 

The ‘slow jams’ for the evening will be Samuel Hertz’ non-logical, non-linear samplings.

Sam will be collaborating with Mara Poliak and Layton Lachman.

Mara Poliak and Layton Lachman, based between San Francisco and Berlin, have been collaborating artists over the past seven years. They are currently creating a new work titled Swimming Pool alongside Samuel Hertz, Abby Crain, Elizabeth Ardent, and Lisa Rybovich Crallé. Their collaborative work investigates geologic mutuality, and often sources from nonhuman frameworks in order to detangle anthropocentric patterns of interaction from our surroundings, other bodies, space, and time.
