In Restagings No. 2: Of Serra (to movement), Abigail Levine interprets Richard Serra’s late 60s Prop sculptures as choreographic score, replacing his iconic steel forms with human bodies. Over the course of four days, three dancers perform Serra’s Props as a series of looping solos and duets with live sound design by Paula Matthusen.


Of Serra is the second work in Levine’s ongoing Restagings series, which reads modern and postmodern visual artworks as scores for performance. The first work in the series, Choreographing LeWitt, was performed at Fridman Gallery in July 2017.
