Commissioned by Roulette Intermedium as part of the Fall 2021 Season, November 3-5, 2021. A collaboration with Karl Scholz and Jodi Bender.

superposition, a new collaborative performance work by choreographer Laurie Berg with performer Jodi Bender, and sound artist Karl Scholz, utilizes the unique acoustics of Roulette’s space to knit sound via an ever shifting speaker configuration. Audience members will be invited to join the performers in experiencing the room from multiple perspectives.

The vulnerable answer to describe superposition:
It’s an invitation to come join us in a very lovely space and sit with the many selves we’ve pushed aside/misplaced/disconnected from. It’s a slasher piece, invoking some entry level quantum theory to situate my body/a body/your body with the multiple selves/possibilities/parts that have come apart over the past two years. I am craving embodiment, but can’t remember where I hid my damn nuts! Jodi and I are working together on the process of putting our dancer-selves back into our bodies. One object/bag of objects/association/speaker placement at a time.
