Trina Mannino’s “Ghost Women: A Dance and Knitting Installation”
September 13, 2018 - September 16, 2018$18
“Ghost Women” is a 30-minute outdoor performance installation featuring a multigenerational cast of knitters and dancers ranging in ages from 19-70. Together, the artists will perform in and weave knitting through Sarah Finkle’s crocheted rope installation.
Presented by Triskelion Arts in its courtyard in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, “Ghost Women” is headlining four evenings of the Collaborations in Dance Festival.
The project was sparked by a conversation between choreographer Trina Mannino and her frequent collaborator California-based Misa Kelly about aging and the duality of feeling invisible and objectified in our culture. Knitting later entered their dialogue for its ability to connect generations. Bringing women of varying generations to the forefront in performance, “Ghost Women” flies in the face of ageism and encourages viewers, particularly older female audience members, to see themselves reflected in performance.

Where: Triskelion Arts Courtyard (106 Calyer St, Brooklyn, NY 11222)
