Sarah's performance art includes collaboration
with creative people to combind performance art wiwth installations
in a gallery or theatre setting. Part of her residence includes
exporing early 20th century systems thinking and how a change
in some of these early assumptions might look today. Sarah
will be making special presentations in HOME's Black Box theatre
and exhibition area during her residency.

her work as "Orchestrating a convergence of plastic sheeting
with ceiling paint, dance, pencil drawing and projected video",
Bebe opened her residency featuring live and recorded performances
with her first collaborator, Sun Ho Kim. The reception, on
February 6th, 2004 made full use of the Bates' interiors that
were transformed into a dancers' workspace.
During the exhibition, Bebe was on
site to discuss her exhibit of old televisions with jarring
images and sound loops compressed onto DVD at HOME, Inc.’s
facilities. Sun Ho, brought a troupe of dancers from the Boston
Conservatory that enhanced his choreographed movements in
stairwells, on a high ledge, and against plastic sheeting
in our theater. He then welcomed audience members to try out
the foreign texture and experience the installation hands-on.
Bebe's plastic series is a commentary on many different meanings
from acceptance, to political messages in the post-9/11 period.
