Ab initio, or “from the beginning,” is a methodology employing primitive components to incrementally build a functional representation of natural processes. This multi-disciplinary collaboration uses the stage as an exploratory space where performers construct a world through relationships across expressive media. By creating new terrain for performers and audience to inhabit, this piece seeks to investigate novel environments, develop dynamics within them, and introduce the possibility of spontaneity and play within the context of a live performance.
