In C



In C was another part of the Industry’s Highway 1 series, a project dedicating to bringing works of the California School of American experimentalism to new dramatic life. We performed the entire aleatoric work four times without pause, using different combinations of sixteen singers and six instruments in the middle of swirling air dancers and Danielle Agami’s ATE/9 dance company. The accessibility of the Hammer Museum’s courtyard meant that the show attracted a widely diverse audience, something central to The Industry’s mission. My favorite moments in the productions was when small children would play with the air dancers and then run over to the live dancers. The look on their faces as the dancers acknowledged them and danced with them was priceless.
