Kitt Johnson

Kitt is a prime member of X-act, which is based in her homeland of Denmark. Her costume and character are from a solo performance titled ‘Stigma’. As spooky as she may seem, behind the makeup and cloak rests a beautiful, kind, focused, and curious woman. Kitt is a self-proclaimed “loner” who’s solo work reflects a deep inner exploration of movement and character. The location is the attic of the ‘Derby House’, an adjacent farm house and property acquired by Jacob’s Pillow which is used to house visiting artists. The foreground object is a rotating paint can filled with cement, which functions as a counterweight for the attic’s trapdoor.
