Dancer Kaoru Ikeda-Billeci is joining the cast, making Pig Tales a ‘trio for five’ plus one, and I have more ideas for the piece, which  I am preparing for the Dixon Place Presents’ Crossing Boundaries performance on June 26th, than I will be able to present in 12 minutes! The material has taken a direction—and revealed a purpose—of its own, interweaving the variously playful, lively and literal, odd and abstract movement sections with song and text from a number of sources: Three Little Pigs, Charlotte’s Web, Sun of Wisdom as well as, most recently, an eloquent letter from the Mothers of Erie Rising requesting that fracking well-pads not be drilled adjacent to their children’s schools and playgrounds. For ticket information on June 26th, go to www.dixonplace.org. I look forward to expanding the piece into an evening-length work in the future.
