A spectacle in three acts, Court/Garden (CG) is a dance and live music performance. It takes as its inspiration the imperial ballets of Louis XIV's French Court, the spectatorship of the proscenium stage, and the presentation of video feeds as cultural, social, and political frames of experience. With direction by choreographer Yanira Castro, an environment by Kathy Couch, costumes by Mio Guberinic, and music by Stephan Moore, CG continues a canary torsi's work in developing scenarios where the audience's presence radically impacts the work. Estimated artist fee: $15,000/performance, $20,000/week, (Plus housing and travel).
