CONSTRUCTION is a collaboration between Susan Marshall & Company and Sō Percussion. In it, music and dance are two separate systems that coexist in a symbiotic and, at times, conflicted relationship. The four percussionists’ instruments are unconventionally employed microphones and amplifiers that play according to a shifting visual score that determines both the music and the musicians’ trajectories through space. Three dancers, driven by a different set of choreographic rules, vie for space with the musicians.
