3 part site-specific duet, commissioned by Crosby Street Gallery to kickoff their New Haven, Connecticut storefront space, Sept. 2010.

In 60% OFF ALL CUSTOM FRAMING, we experimented with shifting the audience’s perspective and relationship to space.  Our secret motivation: the gallerist Rob’s frustrations with the space of the pop-up gallery that wasn’t at all how he had expected it would look.  (“There’s a ramp! A ramp in the middle of the gallery! And a window—how am I supposed to hang up art in the gallery if there’s a window in the middle of it?!!” Etc.)  So beyond the original, pre-meditated challenge of creating a contact improvisation-based duet within the confines of a small, non-resilient glass-enclosed storefront window (contact improvisation is often characterized by its wide, expansive movement), we set out on our covert operation: to transform each of the spaces which most made Rob want to bang his head on a metal pipe.

This site-specific piece can be adapted and customized to the limitations and frustrations which you might have with your own space.
