New York has been hell this winter. By most accounts it's the seventh snowiest year on record, with somewhere around sixty inches of snow having fallen on the city. It doesn't feel much like spring is coming, but it certainly is. It's already March and that means spring will not only arrive—in its official capacity, at least—on the twentieth, but the premiere of BeginAgain will follow a week later. Which means I have a lot to do between now and then.
I've been inspired in terms of trying to expand the way in which I'm documenting the show by a fantastic book called Invisible Things. Published by the UK theater company Fevered Sleep, it's a post-facto document of the process of devising their 2008 installation/performance An Infinite Line: Brighton. As far as books go, it's a beautiful object that, through multiple types of pages attempts to achieve the non-linear intersecting effect I've written about here. Unfortunately, it appears I bought the last copy, but I'm more than happy to share with those interested.
Whatever the case, I'm working on a series of posts which will collect various forms of documentation about each of the four No One to Witness or Adjust chamber studies, including video, photography, production notes, and interviews with the creators, which will lay the groundwork for tracking how zoe|juniper grappled with various ideas and conceptual approaches that ultimately will result in the show that goes up starting March 27 at On the Boards.
