CAST is a concentrated study of what constitutes a cast. Each performance features a random selection of four performers from the ensemble of fifteen who negotiate a new score of movement and text at each performance. A computer-generated script is culled each night from transcripts of over 100 hours of conversation with the full ensemble.

CAST is part of a canary torsi’s newest trilogy of works, CAST, STAGE, AUTHOR, that takes the form of one interactive installation and two live performance works.
