The Near(ness) is a modern-day incantation that invokes the loneliness and holiness of the everyday. The work shifts and drifts between intricate textures of physicality and lush vocal texture created live by the performers.
Music, choreography and direction by Tatyana Tenenbaum in collaboration with performers Ethan Cowan and Lucinda Segar. The premiere included additional electronics by Ezra Tenenbauma and a site-specific video installation in the basement of the vacant St. Mary’s church, Brooklyn.
