A Different Brand of Chaos

dance collaboration with Siri Peterson 2009-2011

A Different Brand of Chaos delves into investigations into humor, show business, and the strange loop of body and brain. The dance moves through and in-between the digital and analog realms, looking at the continuity of waveforms versus the fragmentation of digital forms. Polyrhythms are digital. Water is analog. In between is show business. Leaving an auditory trail of objects (and a visual trail of sequins) behind them, Siri and Laurie embark upon a rhythmical journey that culminates in a binary hoedown.
