Premiere: Vivian Selbo and Carl Skelton's digital assemblage of
TREE: PART 2 OF THE GEOGRAPHY TRILOGY
Vivian Selbo and Carl Skelton's richly crafted web work,
Before & After Geography,
is based on choreographer Ralph Lemon's travel journals, rehearsal notes, documentation videos, and photographs surrounding the creation and performance of Tree: Part 2 of the Geography Trilogy during the 2000 Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Selbo and Skelton's complex assemblage of images, video, sound, animation and text propose a compelling model for how the stage and Internet might dialogue with one another; offering up alternative themes and questions the performance does not or can not address.
