THE BACKYARD is a performance that proposes a hyper-conscious inhabiting of time, space and relationship, a radical invitation for intimacy and embodiment. The improvised movement score for this 45-minute duet was created during a residency at Mad Brook Farm with Lisa Nelson and Steve Paxton, placing their work PA RT (1978- 2002) at the center of the research. Robert Ashley’s music, Private Parts, provides a scaffolding for exploration, cultivating a landscape of deep listening and rigorous attention. THE BACKYARD is thus a palimpsest of Paxton/Nelson’s PA RT—an effaced manuscript, written over, but still bearing traces of its original form.
FIDGET is a platform for the collaborative work of Megan Bridge (choreographer) and Peter Price (composer/video artist), who bring in additional ensemble members depending on the needs of each project.
