Two dance pieces in the works

Working on two new things with two extra-special choreographers.

One is this:

with Karinne Keithley-Syers, based on the writings and life of Willa Cather.  The clip above is from the January CATCH/COIL performance at the Invisible Dog.  More on that later.

The other is this:

with Scotty Heron, so far entitled Appalachian Spring Break – unearthing the collaboration of Martha Graham and Aaron Copland. But also not. There are clarinets taped to microphones connected to guitar pedals. There’s an adult diaper and Ken Burns’ Civil War. First time I’ve been one of two people on stage making the whole show. Terrifying and it’s only the beginning. We will be working on it at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans (as part of The Distillery Residency). Then off to Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis.
