ROOMS WITHOUT A VIEW
Four intimate scenes, which have been isolated from one another in separate rehearsal processes, are brought to co-exist simultaneously on stage. Evoking a NYC apartment building, multiple forms of life unfold in close proximity to one another. Each scene, a duet or a solo, is set in a private apartment or room. Although the viewers’ perspective has a Rear Windowish voyeuristic element and a sense of an overall mosaic of lives, the dancers are strictly confined by the “walls” of their crammed spaces and do not interact with one another at all.
Performed by Lily Baldwin, Lawrence Cassella, Joanna Kotze, Toni Melaas, Markus Weaver, and Jesse Zaritt
