Tango with Gary

Continuous live performance, plywood staging and theater built custom per installation, 2010-2011.

Continuous tango performed with my teacher, Gary. The work continued without beginning or end for approximately one hour at dusk, no audible music. In the first version, I used a borrowed sunroom and directed the audience by map to the location. A custom-built stage elevated the dancers so that just the legs and lower torsos were visible. In the second version, I built a theater for the work which could only be viewed from the window. Again, the dancers’ lower bodies and legs were cropped so that they appears to float above ground.
