Choreographer Niki Cousineau and Designer Jorge Cousineau, as Subcircle, create poetic and moving theatrical works that focus on the space where performance happens. For this performance, the two artists will create a work that uncovers process, collaboration and design while in performance. All this happened more or less is a new work in which the movers, set and music are all protagonists. The piece begins with the collapse of all elements so that the rebuilding becomes the journey- exposing the partnership; decisions and silences. Performed by Niki and Jorge Cousineau with Beau Hancock, Rosi Langabeer, Christy Lee, Scott McPheeters and Christina Zani.
Subcircle’s attention to
detail and the intensity of their full scale atmospheric work is outstanding
among their peers. “Riveting” and “magically surreal,” Subcircle’s work “unfolds episodically yet
seamlessly, with continuous transformations” which transform theatrical and site-specific
spaces by merging dance, sound, set design, lighting, and film. Whether
site-specific or performance for the stage, each work aims to convey to audience
and performer alike an inseparability of performance from environment.
