for North
for North is an interdisciplinary project created by Xan Burley and Alex Springer in collaboration with sound/set designer Will Owen and dance artist Hsiao-Jou Tang. After two years in process, the evening-length piece will premiere at Center for Performance Research, December 1st - 3rd, 2016.

for North is a devotion. We build and rebuild transient architectural borders that expose and confine our pursuant bodies. Each created chamber holds its own familiarity, its own distinct events, its own sonic climate. Much of the score is generated live from sound captured by microphones attached to our bodies. These sounds are sampled, looped and doctored with filters or manipulations of speed whilst in performance. As the work unfolds, they may undergo erasure and replacement or linger as remnants. With every repeated act of constructing space and sound, we are closer and closer to artifact.

for North was developed with the support of CPRs Andrew W. Mellon Artist-in-Residence program as well as the organizations first ever week-long technical residency. The residencies provided 100 hours of low cost rehearsal space and one week of exclusive access to CPRs flexible performance space, with additional support provided by CPRs resident Technical Director and General Manager.
