Figure of Speech: Fluid Dynamics: me, a dancer, some gongs, a bassoon & a guitar
OK, I was really anxious about this event last year, but it came off really well, in spite of the heavy thunderstorm. This year it's happening again — at least a variation of it.
Tonight's the first "practice" — we're calling it that, but it's more of a conceptualizing of what will happen on the weekend. I'm going to shift from being the centrepiece of the event to becoming, more democratically, one of the creators. I think it's going to be make for a more dynamic, unpredictable, textured performance.
FIGURE OF SPEECH: FLUID DYNAMICS
A multidisciplinary, improvisational indoor/outdoor performance blends text, dance, and music.
One evening in September 2008, poet Stuart Ross, dancer Norma Araiza, bassoonist Jeff Burke, guitarist Andrew Frost, and percussionist Steve Lederman presented a provocative, lively, and lush text/dance/music experience. This year, they will collaborate again, for two nights, pushing their works in new directions, with an emphasis on fluidity between their disciplines.
