Henry Art Gallery says
As part of the exhibition "Six Weeks, In Time," Tia Kramer and Tamin Totzke present two durational performances that prioritize human connection and challenge contemporary notions of efficiency. Influenced by motion studies experts Frank and Lillian Gilbreth’s 18 elemental gestures of efficiency and inefficiency, a group of performers will transform object-oriented gestures into human-to-human relationships.

Tia Kramer is a multi-media artist, designer, and director influenced by pedestrian interactions with the spaces we inhabit. Kramer studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has a BA from Macalester College. Tamin Totzke is a choreographer, dance educator, and improviser who works to physicalize the reciprocal relationship between body and environment. Totzke received her MFA in dance from the University of Illinois.
