Emily Mast, The Stage is a Cage, final performance shot


The Stage Is A Cage, 2015, performance, 45 minutes

With: Emily Mast & Jos McKain

Ellie Rabinowitz, Lights
Steve Klems, Sound
Madeleine Lederer, Stage management

This piece was made in order to create a large-scale drawing using performance as a means. Gestures generated formal results that were both intentional and random. Mast and a McKain, a professional dancer, worked with scores, meditations and photographs to explore animal impulses, the animal body and various ways that messages can be transmitted without words.
