A dance piece conceived, researched, directed and performed by Carrie Ahern, Borrowed Prey is an investigation of our relationship to the animals that most of us consume. Bringing together 4 strands of research: hunting, butchering, and slaughtering of animals, plus the work of animal behavior scientist and autistic Dr. Temple Grandin, Borrowed Prey aims to illuminate more about the true “farm to table” process and our human capacity for empathy.
Formed at the start of 2007, New Prosthetics is the new music/new media performance duo of Anne Hege and Harrison Owen. Friends and collaborators since the mid-90s, New Prosthetics began when Hege moved east from Oakland, California to begin the doctorate program in music composition at Princeton University. The duo has performed numerous times in New York City at venues such as the Tank, Glasslands, and Monkeytown and at Princeton as part of a seminar on text and sound with Amy X Neuburg and Mendi+Keith, as well as participating in an atelier taught by Laurie Anderson.
