“How can we make the audience a partner in adventure instead of a consumer?” – Frie Leysen
Katie Ewald asked dance-makers Jasmin McGraw, Simon Portigal, and Lynette Segal to re-imagine and re-construct a recent work that they have each performed in an intimate setting and to adapt it to the context of the formal atmosphere of Stage B. She has given the artists the directive to expand their work from the initial idea into something bigger, and they have accepted the challenge. What connects all of the works is their strong conceptual basis, and the fact that none of the pieces use ‘music,’ but rather sound design or text. What it will be is still unknown, but it’s sure to be compelling.
