"When we first performed this piece at The Kitchen, 33 years ago, in February 2007 it involved a non-narrative movie featuring two familiar but unrelated icons of American folklore. Just before the movie, a stream of live actions was performed by a group of nine intensely focused individuals. The movie's soundscore fractured and connected the space between looking and listening. When the movie was over, we brought the audience into a new environment, where the performers continued their tasks in darkness, and the sounds shifted from being the element in between, to being space itself, the architecture, and everything it contained."
