The Way Things Travel by John Roach and Aaron Moore
April 19th and 20th 2013
The Way Things Travel is a project that combines hands-on workshops and a culminating performance. No musical, sound, or building expertise is required and the optimal result would be a blend of trained (native) and untrained (tourist) participants. The workshops will involve instrument building and foley techniques and the culminating performance will utilize a three-screen video projection of archival travel and tourism footage that will act as a visual score for groups of performers. The Way Things Travel embraces Cage’s statement about the “tourist attitude” by inviting performers to mingle with non-performers, non artists to work side by side with artists. The project courts Cage’s views on indeterminacy through its visual and sonic improvisational collisions.
