Lucie Baker and Carlye Eckert

One set. One cast. Two choreographers. Two entirely different works.
Project RUIN: Reconstructing Collaboration

Choreographers Lucie Baker and Carlye Eckert, in cahoots with set designer Chimmy Gunn and composer Michael Caterisano, explore our daily demolitions and recreations of home through the manipulation of space, sound and movement. Baker and Eckert each respond to the same thematic parameters using a shared set and a group of five performers, supported by live music. Over the course of both dances, the set is transformed by the cast. The second piece begins where the first piece leaves off, forcing instinctive negotiations of the environment. Project RUIN engages the audience through a range of physical and sensory stimulation in the round. Dance, music and design are all at play to sustain the spontaneous and ephemeral community that exists in the performance arena. Project RUIN comes to life in the middle ground between performers and audience members as the cast creates and destroys two tiny worlds.
