HERElogoHERE Arts Center is an amazing resource for artists working in performance. At the HARP residency I enjoyed for the 2015/2016 season, directors Kim Whitener and Kristin Marting encouraged all the fellows to take risks and try new things.  Boy did I try new things!  My piece “Elements,” for me and Joe Bergen (of Mantra Percussion fame) is one part storytelling, one part instruction score for percussion, and one part math lecture. Cantor’s classification of the different sizes of infinity has been an obsession of mine for decades (yes, decades! I’m old.) and making art about it felt both novel and natural.

I just got hold of the video of this performance, and uploaded it straight away to my vimeo page. Take a gander and give me a shout with any thoughts you have about it!  Something tells me this piece may rise again sooner than I think…
