About Splice
In Splice, performers invite you to step into an installation by artist Jeremy Holmes that loops without beginning or end. Through movement and sound, the audience is sent on a quiet yet reeling exploration as dancers shift, split and cut. Splice creates a full-bodied experience of tension, lightness, and the architecture of surprise.

Tickets are $20/general admission and $15/students and dance passes.

More information regarding performance times and purchasing tickets can be found on the FringeArts website www.fringearts.com.

More information about the Leah Stein Dance Company can be found at their websitewww.leahsteindanceco.org.

Featuring the work of installation artist Jeremy Holmes from Ithaca, NY, this solo exhibition consist of a continuous, site-specific wood installation designed for the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery. Using five varieties of North American hardwoods, Holmes explores the contrasts between the abstract shapes of bent wood and the geometric rooms the piece inhabits. Holmes uses space in original and unexpected ways, filling voids in interiors that would otherwise go unnoticed and allowing the viewer to experience the work from within. His work pushes interactions between the viewer and site and evokes a new curiosity in a traditional material.
