WAS IT THE WIND?

New long term collaboration with Sound Designer and speaker queen Erin Bednarz.  Was it the Wind? debuted at the Oregon Fringe Festival in the spring of 2018.

 JEFFREY GILLESPIE FOR THE TIDINGS writes, 

"Powerful classical music was interspersed with brisk, high-velocity, unintelligible language and drumbeats. Spoken word, recorded voices and additional ambient, electronic and experimental music set the tone as actors dispersed into areas of the park in displays of feral animosity, sometimes climbing and then dropping from trees, at other points crouching in the bushes or re-emerging to run a significant distance to come together as a group.

Movement was reminiscent of work of Twlya Tharp, White Bird and others, but outside of that, the process seemed fairly original in concept and execution. Despite a complicated set of circumstances, once the downpour lifted somewhat to a steady drizzle and the performance began to wind down, I was left feeling relaxed, contemplative, and intrigued. "
