THE IMMATERIAL WORLD

solo
dance
voice



This is my take on the beyond
as it resides right in the here and now.

It is both eerie and assuring; it wavers calmly on the edge
of perception and understanding.

It provides little reference except
the movement of
and the sounds from
the body.

"Welcome to the Immaterial World."

Over the past 15 years i have made many solos where the spoken word has played a clear and powerful role.
Here now, words as complete units of verbal sense, are highly dissolved;
letters forming words, forming sentence, leading to meaning or suggestion or metaphor,
are all let go of,
left to be as they might be in another realm.

Here the voice is mainly wordless.


Here in the Immaterial World other matters matter

......and voice is an agent of tone tune rhythm rhyme
and the various levels of vocal vagueness and clarity
form as a web to catch the guts of the piece,
the 'anima' of the action.

And this voice is lead by and leads the body,
living in sound
as the dancing flesh works its way
into common matter
common space
and theatrical time.
