A Networked Performance for the New World Center
The Frank Gehry designed New World Center comprises a vast collection of geometries: a range of spaces seemingly carved into the solid mass of their container with little respect for the right‐angle or the straight line. An interior where it can be difficult to comprehend where one surface finishes and another begins, as to where the volume of any one space touches another. Could music performed simultaneously across separate parts of the building explore and expose the remnants of musicians who reside between? Could it access other worlds that are lost between the physical geometries?
The Spaces Within premiered at the Network Performing Arts Production Workshop in April 2018 as a work in progress with the fellows of the New World Symphony.
