May/June, 2008 my prestigious collegues and I will be attacking two academic institutions with border-bending, site-specific, multi-disciplinary, multi-ism events…
As part of Stanford University’s Red Rover -an outdoor traveling performance, Brenton Chen, Abhay Ghiara, and myself present Bamboo Alley, a site-specific performance piece with movement, made/found instruments, and natural occurrences. For videos, photos, and blogs on the development of the piece, please visit:

Red Rover is an evening of five commissioned, site-specific dance/performance
works created for and performed in a series of outdoor sites.
human/nature explores collaborative work in a variety of mediums and is based in the 1,000 poem document of a daily writing practice undertaken by Stephen Ratcliffe. This performance extends his investigations into the integration/ interaction of human beings and natural landscape: “the relation between things seen/observed in the world and how such things might be made (transcribed/transformed) as works of written (or visual) art.” The reading of the poems will accompany sound, light, movement and sculpture in an open dialogue with the architecture of the surrounding space. The duration of this work is not yet known, but it is likely to to go between 8 and 10 hours.
