Big Dance Theater: Cage Shuffle (World Premiere)

In Cage Shuffle Paul Lazar speaks a series of one-minute stories by John Cage from his 1963 score Indeterminacy while simultaneously performing choreography by Annie-B Parson. The stories are spoken in a random order with no predetermined relationship to the dancing. Chance serves up its startling blend of inevitable and uncanny connections between text and movement. With live tape and digital collage scored and performed by composer Lea Bertucci.

“…Read all ninety stories in order or select a smaller number, using chance procedures or not.”  – Indeterminacy performance instructions by John Cage

Run Time: 50 minutes
