We spent 10 weeks in residence at Green Street Studios for their Spring 2014 Green Works program (formerly known as the Emerging Artist or New Works Program). We pushed our edges and explored new territory. Using selfies as source material, we sought to understand our relationship to ourselves and each others as watchers and when being watched, accepting attention as performers and training during classes. The piece examined body, movement quality, and emotion while shifting between the roles of director and directed, individual and shared experiences.
The piece arcs through a framework of three sections, the particulars driven by performer choices, with an original score and live accompaniment by Tyler Catanella of Paradise Lost. We are thrilled to continue to explore what we've just scratched the surface of, and cannot thank Green Street enough for creating the space and community to experiment with telling stories to move others through dance.
Until our next live performance of this piece TBD, enjoy excerpts from the April 18th, 2014 performance.
