Our newest collaborative project, CAST, STAGE, AUTHOR is a trilogy of works to premiere for three weeks in September 2017 at three commissioning NYC venues: The Chocolate Factory, Abrons Art Center and The Invisible Dog Art Center. The project begins with a set of audio and video recordings with 15 NYC performers about the act of performing, the act of casting, and how imperfectly a cast might represent our public. These recordings form the material for three works that examine the dynamics and politics in three elements of performance: the cast, spectacle, and authorship.

Performance | Portrait is a responsive video installation that invites each visitor to an encounter with a performer. Grounded in questions of intimacy and connection within the performance experience, four distinguished performers were recorded maintaining their focus on a future audience. Performance | Portrait opened at The Invisible Dog Art Center on December 3, 2016 and ran through January 9, 2017.

Court/Garden {CG}, is a spectacle in three acts with live music and live video feeds. It takes as inspiration the participatory spectacles of the French Court, the spectatorship of the proscenium stage, and the presentation of live video feeds as cultural, social and political frames of experience. The dance plays with a strict formalism where the audience’s relationship to the event is in flux. CG references couture, cinema, and Baroque to excavate power in control of the image. Court/Garden will tour to Chicago for the OnEdge Festival March 24 -25, 2017.
