John Jasperse returns to ADF with the world premiere of an ADF co-commissioned work, Remains (working title). The piece is made in collaboration with performers Maggie Cloud, Marc Crousillat, Burr Johnson, Heather Lang, Stuart Singer, and Claire Westby, composer John King, lighting designer Lenore Doxsee, who collaborated with Jasperse on Within between (ADF 2014), and video designer Jeff Larson. The work addresses the illusion of ego, the notion of a fluid boundary between the self and one’s environment, and the notion of legacy as the sum total of the energy that we put out into the world—what we build energetically in our environment through our actions and what we leave behind in our wake.
