Three atmospheric studies ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Three atmospheric studies consists of three parts that are referred to as compositions. First come compositions 1 to 3; the fourth is a crucifixion scene by the painter Lukas Cranach, with the fifth being a modern-day press agency photograph depicting an exploding landscape in the Middle East. Both pictures can be seen hanging in the foyer during the performances. Compositions 4 and 5 correlate, to the extent that Cranach's thunderhead -- not just a meteorological phenomenon, but a divine, biblical one as well -- can also be seen rising from the detonation in the photograph. Here we see the underlying structure that informs all of the evening's compositions, throughout which a single scene repeats itself on multiple levels. Bringing these repetitions into alignment is the main challenge confronting the viewer." -- Brooklyn Academy of Music program note.

Decreation ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"In Decreation, all communication is mediated, detoured, in a seamless flow of configuration and displacement as the piece re-forms itself continually around three questions. Sound is transformed, weeps, and soars through bodies that move in constant, oblique tension. Dialogues, characters, and physical commands migrate between the dancers; a rapid, slithering switch from body to body as the piece unfolds in a labyrinth of deformation, tenderness, and rage." -- program note, BAM house program.
