Two dance works:
work-in-progress Me and the Ghost Upstairs
Body of Words
“Me and the Ghost Upstairs” is a duet that explores the homes we build for the spirits that haunt us. Inspired by the Buddhist teachings on Hungry Ghosts and a deleted scene from Fred Astaire’s Second Chorus, the two performers navigate an intimate world carefully guarded by a chorus of personal apparitions. The dance seeks out the hidden parts of everyday narratives and the intimate, internal spaces we make for them. The eeriest haunting is a haunting of the home. It is unclear who is in charge. It is unclear to whom this home belongs. Threatening and yet strangely loving, this work questions what comes after a life of haunting? What happens when a ghost dies?
Still in development, this work includes appearances by a chorus of spirits and re-imaginings of Astaire’s recordings by composer Matt Wiggers.
Approximate Time: 20-30 mins
“Body of Words” is a improvisation performance featuring a+s works and company members. A structured improvisation is set to a recording of an interview or public talk.
