Last night Chris Peck and I were interviewed by Levi Gonzalez for Movement Research’s Critical Correspondence. The discussion was very fluid and engaging. It gave Chris and I an opportunity to discuss our series Live Sh– at the Chocolate Factory. We talked about why we started it, what our interest is it, ideas surrounding organizing an event and curating performance. We discussed a lot about what we see the role of curation as being and how we find ourselves and interests within that position. I am excited for it to come out on the site as an audio interview and hopefully as a text transcription as well. I am posting a couple of pics that Chris took during the interview.
The cowboy and horse makes a special appearance during the interview as a musical performance.
Jon Moniaci and I are continuing to work on our new performance BOREDOM!!! (as an amplifier). The show is just about a month away and we should be getting the postcards back from the printers tomorrow. Here our some recent pictures from rehearsals and discussions we have had in preparation of the piece.

I am really excited at how this piece is turning out and am looking forward to sharing it with an audience. We are at a pivotal place right now where we are pretty happy with all the content that has been generated. But now we are trying to find the composition and placement of that content in relationship with the whole piece, the individual elements and the physical space. I find this part of the process super challenging. I guess this is what choreographer is about. At least in some ways. Luckily we have received very helpful feedback from Chris, Levi and Luciana Achugar.
