Amidst (The Painted Bird II)

Haunting images interface with a cast of three, juxtaposing the past and present, real and virtual, as a constant shifting illusion at the intersection of dance, visual art, and live music. The audiovisual elements engulf the audience, who is invited to make their own choices about where to experience the work. Blurred lines of presence and absence, memory and disappearance cannot possibly all be consumed. The Painted Bird fittingly focuses on nostalgia as a place of entrapment on a journey “home.”

In the editing room: Beth Gill | Electric Midwife flew down to Austin, TX to capture this intimate dance performance by NYC choreographer Beth Gill. Read about her work at the Fusebox Festival where it all happened.

Coming up Next: Half Straddle/Tina Satter Seagull (Thinking of you)
