    Originating from internal physical processes, Moriah Evans' Figuring takes micro movements as method. Through the engagement of energies, reactions, and interactions, three female performers make visible and audible internal systems in order to pitch them against the external forces of space and other. Control and loss of control become the borders that the performers traverse in a series of measured movements that attempt to reconfigure the perceived cohesiveness and stability of the human form. Through pacing and scale, physical gestures make malleable the inner qualities of the body, as well as the sensation of time. Figuring brings forth the unseen, yet felt, world of bodies and space. Figuring is commissioned by SculptureCenter and is presented by SculptureCenter in conjunction with American Realness.

    Figuring was partially developed through a residency at MoMA PS1. The piece was also researched and honed through financial, administrative, and residency support provided by the Dance in Process program at Gibney Dance with funds provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. SculptureCenter's presentation of Figuring is made possible with the support of Trudy Gottesman, Tabitha L. Decker, Margaret Gorji, Sheila Ravendhran, and Brooke and Toby Segaran.

    SculptureCenter's exhibition, program, and operating support is generously provided by grants from the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation; the Kraus Family Foundation; the A. Woodner Fund; Jeanne Donovan Fisher; the Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation; New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer; and contributions from our Board of Trustees and Director's Circle. Strategic planning support is provided by the LuEsther T. Mertz Fund of The New York Community Trust. Additional funding is provided by the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation and contributions from many generous individuals.

    SculptureCenter's programming is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, and made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
