‘Unfolding’ is a cross disciplinary collaboration with composer Martin Gendelman that explores different aspects of the act of opening, using various media - musical gestures, dance movement and the space itself. The piece premiered in March 2007 at the Dance Theater at CSPAC as a part of Gendelman’s doctoral dissertation. Spatially the piece evolves from one confined in a reduced, compact place (downstage of the main curtain), crowded with 80 music stands, to an open one with the emphasis on the vastness and depth of the theater. ’Unfolding’ is instrumented for eight musicians and four dancers, and runs about 45 minutes without intermission.
