g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title)
A highly physical work led by dancers Natalie Green and Rebecca Warner with Asli Bulbul, devynn emory, Athena Malloy and Saúl Ulerio, g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) features an original score for instruments and electronics by composer Jeffrey Young and projected visuals by artist Glen Fogel, who previously collaborated with Spradlin on the 2006 work Survive Cycle. Music for g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) will be performed live by Young (violin, live electronics), Hannah Levinson (viola), Mara Mayer (bass clarinet) and Lisa Dowling (bass). Evolved from within the creative process, Young’s score was initially developed through improvisation during rehearsals with the dancers, and includes samples of the dancers’ voices. Lighting by designer Stan Pressner / Ben Hagen and costumes by Walter Dundervill will round out the work.
