Incidental Matters

In place of a typical senior recital, "Incidental Matters" was meant to highlight the many small components of my liberal arts education at Connecticut College in the form of a performance piece. The show made use of music, dance, video, sculpture and content from various religious studies and English department courses to tell a story that both reflects and looks forward. A team of seven individuals — musicians, dancers and crew — supported and accentuated an otherwise solo-driven presentation. Technologically, use of the Microsoft Kinect in conjunction with Max/MSP/Jitter attempted to heighten gesture/audio interactive sequences.
