JACK presents the first collaboration of composer/musician Brendan Connelly (Theater of a Two-headed Calf) and Bessie-winning choreographer/performance artist Scotty Heron a staple of the downtown scene in the 80's and 90's. The two, both currently New Orleans-based, play with the iconic, confused and clichéd relationship of choreographer and composer, glancing sideways at Martha Graham and Aaron Copland's only collaboration and its sepia-toned Americana. The lines of collaboration are gleefully blurred in this duet, where all movement, sound and light are generated and manipulated by the onstage duo. Contact microphones fill the stage and movements are often sound-generating: toe-shoes on an amplified piano bench; a reverbed water pail dragged across the stage; two dismantled clarinets; an adult diaper and a pair of toe-shoes; a bucket of water and a pile of guitar pedals. Ken Burns' Civil War. A pop. A click. A slow entrance from the hanamichi. A flourish of eyelashes and then, the Finale.
