Piece with gaps for each other (2016)
with Martin Lanz Landazuri and Kohji Setoh.
Phenomenological to fantastical. Material to theatrical. And back.
A nested stack of leaky containers.
An investment in the potential, not of collaboration, but of permeability.

Full work at The Chocolate Factory
Piece with gaps for each other was commissioned by The Chocolate Factory Theater with support from the Jerome Foundation. It was made possible through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation, by the Davis/Dauray Family Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. It was also developed with financial, administrative and residency support from Gibney Dance’s boo-koo Artist Residency program with funding provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the SHS Foundation. Performances in New York City were supported by the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program and also through the generosity of the GENELEC company. The residency and performance in Kamakura was organized by ROOT CULTURE, artist collective based in Kamakura Japan, and financially supported by the Grants for Artist-In-Residence program of Kanagawa Prefecture. This work was also developed through the 2015 edition Laboratorio Condensación at Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City.
