Created during a residency in the remote town of Wells, B.C Canada the work was first performed at the 2019 ArtsWells Festival. This work has continued to develop through a residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in December 2019 and is touring through British Columbia in summer 2020 and Montreal in September.
A catenary is the curve that an idealized hanging rope assumes under its own weight when supported at its two ends. This definition and the relationship it describes is the foundational concept for the piece, which yearns to explore the centers of symmetry not only between our respective disciplines - music and dance - but between the poles of antagonism that define our social, economic and political reality. Catenary fuses, upsets and subverts the relationship between live music, dance, and futuristic sound design (played live by Maxx Berkowitz).
