Kidd Pivot / Crystal Pike "The Tempest Replica"

The sounds, that I suppose were of creaking wooden floorboards and an opening door underscoring a sparsely melodic piano, bell, guitar piece — was an anticipation of an entrance, a presence, a character, a movement. It was sometimes stretched and became a percussion. The rattling of a metal foil, the sweeps of waves, and tapping water. Remember these. How they worked together.

The multimedia opened with a spotlight image of rain behind which characters dressed in white danced. Projection escapes the scrim and falls on the character, almost like an animation. A clever overlap which was exposed by strobe lighting. 

Identification of characters possible as they changed out of the "paper-cut" costumes that masked their features. Each character has significant and clear visual language.

Post-show: Director talks about the body and various possibilities of stoppages. How the body comes to a stop — something she always thinks about. The removal of verbal cues as a way to connect and feel with other senses and on a visceral level.
