AUDIO-VISUAL-KINETIC stage performance
In 2004-5 Intersection explored interactions among dancers, musicians, and artists, particularly Peter, an artist outsider with Down Syndrome.
Energo-informational interaction/improvisation within a group of artists working in different styles and media with an artist outsider (a Down Syndrome artist) who, as the show progresses, was creating on stage the primitivistic portraits of audience members along the lines of Naive art. The show was about the interfacing of two universes—the rational and intuitive—including their collisions, points of conflicts, and interactions. The show is also about the inner world of the Artist, an outsider in the world, irrational and archaic, penetration into which helps restore connections and information long lost, and helps touch the present and partake of the civilizations long gone.
