1991 – Spirit Path / Migration / Remains – “The Spirit of Place” – the Anasazi (See Earth Spirit Rising for early performance) “The distilled and starkly primal movement style expresses the mystery and power – “the spirit of place” – of wilderness land sites of the Four Corners Area of the Southwest.” (Flyer Quote) Shared concert includes Still Rush and Crossing the Edge at Dance Place, January 12,/13, 1991.
Dancer for Crossing the Edge: John Lancaster, Mark Thompson, Leah Kline Tabassi, and Maida Withers – performed at Dance Place with Earth slides of Bruce Hucko and Kaleidoscopic Photos of Mark Thompson by Adam Peiperl???
Origin of the idea: 1989 Path (Yellow Springs Institute, Philadelphia, PA) and 1991 Path/Migration /Remains (Arlington, VA) support the choreographic development.
Artists and Collaborators
- Light Design
- "Two works in progress are presented in this program, along with a post-performance discussion in which the choreographers answer audience questions about their works. The work presented by Maida Withers was a segment of a larger project called Migrations, with collaborators William Eaton, Michael Willis, James Byrne and Bruce Hucko, concerning the relationship between humans and land in the Southwest."
