Chasm: a major new performance commission by Rebecca Patek. Comprising choreography for a solo dancer and a musical composition for two harpsichords, Pateks performance positions the female body as a subjective sexual object form caught between animalism and humanism, between romanticism and realism, between emotion and thought with a physical and visual vocabulary drawn from tantric sex, classic New England Contra Dance, Dada and Surrealism, and the movements of pioneering figures in dance, including Martha Graham and Isadora Duncan, and also abortion.
