Rose Blue

Befort & Graczyk emerge out of celebrated performance company Salt Horse, whose "expertise lies in the ability to fashion elusive, shape-shifting work" (Amy Mikel, Seattlest) to premiere evening-length duet Rose Blue at the artist-driven, experimental performance space, BASE, in Georgetown. Befort & Graczyk offer a meticulously crafted duet that transforms a narrative of their shared, 15-year history including being present at the birth of a friends child, loss of a parent, living in a foreign country and a divorce. Within the range of these potent and universal life-altering human events, Graczyk and Befort examine the specificity of memory, both accurate and blurred.  From their own shared experiences they re-create the sensations and images of these extreme imprints while also structurally reflecting their fragmented and inaccurate processing over time. Sound artist Jason E. Anderson live-mixes original recordings, Foley and layered textures to sonically illuminate the action.

At once rowdy, sensual, mathematical and humorous, Rose Blue progresses as a cycling mosaic of lived memories, extrapolated fantasies and appropriated scenes from David Lynchs Fire Walk With Me and Williams/Kazans A Street Car Named Desire. Befort and Graczyk challenge their own history of making work together in this new duet and bi-coastal configuration, but remain true to what they were lauded for having in 2008: "an amazingly raw stage presence and vulnerability that is etched with virtuosic articulation." (Sean Ryan, On the Boards)

Rose Blue has been performed several times in different iterations to reach this final, evening-length version. An initial work-in-progress was showcased in the University of Washingtons 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Dance Department. In October 2016, a longer version was presented by Triskelion Arts Center, NYC, in their Split Bill Series.
