I am grateful that friends and colleagues provide positive feedback and am fascinated by the way each person relates to a performance according to his/her own mindset. Dixon Place was the third venue where friends viewed After All, and they mentioned seeing new things at each performance:

  • A musician friend was struck by the unusual timbres created by the cello.
  • A writer who works in film as well as print found the integration of music, movement, and visuals seamless.
  • A neuromuscular therapist and former dancer commented on the articulation, power, and intensity of the movement.
  • A colleague who teaches dance composition found the movement choices thought–provoking, and two Tibetan Buddhist practitioners saw bardos (in–between states).

One friend told me that After All looks like a completely different piece in each venue because the video projection changes so significantly in each space. A videographer who came to the spacing rehearsal in the theatre sat in the last row during one runthrough and in the first row during the second and also commented it was like viewing two different pieces.
