Sideways Hot Tub: Super Motivation Galore - is a performance in which we will be privy to the primary influences of these fresh paintings and how they will provide excited direction for the musicians of The Board and the accompanying dancers.
Jacob Broussard’s current exhibition Sideways Hot Tub at Basin Arts is an attempt to investigate the action of representing something, or ‘re-presenting’. His works examine the act of translation of sight into the practice of painting. In that spirit and under those parameters, September’s Art Walk at Basin Arts will play host to a live music and dance improv performance by The Board and Basin Dance. The choices made throughout the performance will be happening in the moment and will be guided by a collection of source images that Jacob Broussard used as a foundation for his collection of paintings in Sideways Hot Tub.
“The Board is a large collection of musicians from the Lafayette area that have been coming together on and off for the last 13 years to perform completely improvised music. Even though the palette of instruments is always changing, percussion is always at the center of the sound. Performances are often without pause and can take the listener on a journey through wild musical waters; from floating on calming synth beds, to pounding, pulsing, exotic trans-inducing rhythms, to down-right wacky and peculiar sonic constructions. Everything is made-up all the time. Lately, however, the group has been utilizing an actual “board” on stage as a part of the show…a white board with marker upon which anyone in the group (or audience) can feel free to write a word or instruction to help steer the direction of the music.”
