A Place to Fall Into (film)
20 min video, full color & sound

This video is documentation of a movement work by Jordan Rosenow presented on June 28, 2018 at the Walker Art Center as part of Terrace Thursdays curated by Jacqueline Stahlmann. A Place to Fall Into was a series of unfixed performances concentrated on proximity, slowness, and the tension between bodies and sculpture. For three hours performers moved at a glacial pace through the building’s terrace, adjacent galleries, and amongst the crowd. Occasionally two performers would cross paths and join for an extended duet before continuing on a solo route.

Performers include Judith Holo Lue Choy, Lauren Coleman, Caitlin Dippo, Malakai Greiner, Katrina Matejcik, Amal Rogers, Jordan Rosenow, and Joél Valdez. Costumes were created by Katrina Matejcik and the work was filmed by Justin Sengly.
A Place to Fall Into will be projected each afternoon and evening, visible directly from the street at 1224 W Loyola Ave while the space itself remains closed to the public.

"I am spending quarantine with my girlfriend in our apartment in the Financial District, New York. New York City is being labeled the epicenter for this pandemic in the United States. Cases in the US are now the highest globally. Currently 100,500 cases have been reported in the US with 1,546 deaths. However, due to a lack of testing, we know the infection rate to be significantly higher. My partner and I both became sick with the coronavirus mid-March and our symptoms left a week later. We are grateful to return to full health and our hearts are with everyone who is being affected by this crisis. Today, Friday, March 27th, was the first time we have left the apartment since. The footage was taken midday on a Friday when the streets would normally be packed with hustling people. I filmed in five locations within four blocks of our apartment: Broadway St, Battery Park City, Oculus World Trade Center, the Federal Reserve, and our building rooftop. This movement is thinking about hand washing as both repetitive choreography and, along with isolation, a main defense against this deadly virus. This work was inspired by Yvonne Rainer, Hand Movie (1966).​"
