STAGE is a visual and aural fantasia that explores the Playhouse at Abrons Arts Center as a center for spectacle. Guided by longtime a canary torsi collaborators, environment and lighting artist Kathy Couch and composer Stephan Moore, three improvising musicians will compose a score with amplified sound sources: instruments, objects, and software. The choreography is the machination of stage action, emphasizing the theatrical devices’ role in forming what we are intended to see.

STAGE 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.
