    Quadrille is 4 chairs interspersed with 7 dance majors from the University Of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The dancing is derived and inspired by the final scene of Jean Renoir’s "French Cancan" and put into a contemporary, formal context. The dancing hints at actual cancan moves and rhythms, and flirts with the films timing. Quadrille suggests that we should keep looking, even though might have already missed the party.

    This first installment of this piece was put together with long time collaborator Alexandra Hartmann and Judy Bauerlein and was performed at the Brooklyn Arts Exchange during their Women’s Festival of March 2000.

    The evening length version of Every Hotel TV Plays On was performed January 2001 at Dixon Place as part of their artist in residency. This show created by Johanna S. Meyer with help from Alexandra Hartmann and performers incorporating live video projection, dance, and theater. Every Hotel TV Plays On is performed with two actors and three dancers. It is a beautiful yet humorous piece creating tension between the physical arrangements of performers and then their images that are projected behind them. The projector and video camera become theatrical props and are interwoven throughout this dance. The performers film themselves, each other, and textual patterns on their clothing while cradling the camera in non conventional ways of filming; using speculum mirrors to record performers behind themselves. Every Hotel TV Plays On uses the delicate nature of video equipment with full physicality of the performers throwing themselves across the space. It is a piece that looks at our TV culture and why we are mesmerized by two dimensionality and then desensitized by it. This show is a highly creative use of video and dance exploring the humor of what is actually being projected and what is more important the performers or the projection from the audiences focal point.
