Left and Right In a dark room, silhouetted figures throw a gossamer sheet over a woman who is playing a toy organ and singing.
Left and Right Dancer Jerron Herman holds a silver bucket and focuses forward as he strikes a ritualistic shape.
Left and Right We see a room from above. Three people are near a wall performing gestures with their arms, and a woman stands shrouded in a shimmering sheet. The audience is on two sides.
Left and Right Composer Molly Joyce stands in a room illuminated in orange-red, with audience on two sides of her.
Left and Right Three performers stand in purple light below a video screen, which shows video of two of the performers in a gestural dance. A woman stands in front of them, shrouded in gossamer. The audiences watches from two sides.
Left and Right Composer Molly Joyce is shrouded in a gossamer fabric and dimly lit in near-silhouette, as she plays her toy organ and sings.
