Told through the life story of the artist’s grandmother, 96-year-old Sophia Saren, Daniel Burkholder’s new multi-media work questions memory and the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves. In collaboration with Danceworks Performance Company, Stories from a Life interweaves interview video clips with athletic dancing, audience interaction and music both abstract and familiar.
Stories From A Life also investigates how audiences derive meaning from theatrical events. The audience is divided into two locations – one with visceral dance performed live and another where a video interview with Ms. Saren plays alongside subtle, gestural movement. At intermission, the audience switches spaces and the work repeats. By layering information, Burkholder questions how audiences see, understand and allow work to have meaning.
