We just finished a technical residency at Dance New Amsterdam. These excerpts a in-progress experiments with light designer Carrie Wood.
The first section is taken from a sequence in which we're bringing forth all the speech sounds. Here you're hearing the consonants sounded alone with corresponding gestures while lighting designer Carrie Wood tries out her 'color typewriter'. In the second section, called Town Hall, we're working on ways to present danced, dramatic speech in the ancient ode format of strophe/antistrophe/epode. In the last section (Garland of Letters) we're placing each of the letters within the body, a practice that predates mantra.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
