Like Dirt, February 21, 23 and 24, 2008

Re: Like Dirt. Rachel Cohen's choreography for Like Dirt is so fresh, so funny and so powerful I can't really describe it without sounding like an idiot. Patty Rosenblatt is the new addition to our team and she is rising to the occasion creating a variety of sculptural environments that will shift over the course of the open rehearsal and two performances. Yes, sculpture as performance...

And as always, I can't say enough about Flip, Helga and Lynn. Without these musicians I'd be lost. The live instrumentation for Like Dirt is laptop running Ableton Live, a Kaoss pad, electric guitar, trumpet and voice. We'll be running through amps (no PA) and balancing our sound accordingly.

Here's the details:
