I found a bag of nuts
“I found a bag of nuts” is a structured improvisation for 5 dancers using set solo and duet studies linked through task-based instructions. Each dancer receives instructions prior to the performance assigning individual cues for when/how/what/where to dance. Throughout the piece cues are given at random and the performers must respond based on their instructions. Using a Cunningham-esque element of chance “I found a bag of nuts” has a surprise waiting around every corner.
