Madeline Hollander's "Drill" is a durational performance, featuring between 2 - 7 dancers, to be performed throughout the month. Performances take place from 1 - 6 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. The performance uses the evacuation procedure diagrams for airplanes, museums, theme parks and other public structures as a basis for a series of choreographic scores. Each performer moves through a trajectory as described by one of the emergency floor plans, looping continuously. Several aircraft evacuation slides are suspended from the ceiling of the space to loom over the performers during the piece.

"Iris" features works on paper and sculptural objects by Aidan Koch. The dreamlike character-based works explore the relationship between perception and reality. "Iris" is Koch's first solo exhibition in New York.

SIGNAL is located at 260 Johnson Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206. www.ssiiggnnaall.com.
