To get an idea of where I‘ve been with this, you check out this narrative more or less covering (actually, dancing around) my project with Zoe Scofield and Juniper Shuey. In 2013. Not the 2012 part, not the 2014 part. Just 2013. This is the morass I’m working way through right now–hours of interviews, hundreds of photos, pages upon pages of writings, dozens of emails. All to produce a definitive document of the making of BeginAgain, which will be returning (in mainstage form) to NYC as part of PS122’s 2015 COIL Festival, at Baryshnikov Arts Center.
And that’s just what I’ve been through. Think about the artists! All that work! Unfortunately, for all this work to come to fruition, the company needs to replace a massive, hand-made, delicate paper cut-out backdrop by Celeste Cooning. Which was literally lost in the mail. And which FedEx did not cover the cost of replacing. So let’s all help cough a little bit to let us see this amazing design the way it was meant to be seen.
