In July, 2011, I visited an exhibition of the Sondheim finalists at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Upon entering the gallery space where nine of Rachel Rotenberg?s sculptures were on display, I knew that I had to make it possible to move around and between her works of art.
Prior to filming, I visited the gallery on various occasions. During each visit I let Rachel?s work speak to both my choreographic sense of movement and my sensitivity to language and sound. The sculptures became as harps. I listened as they played on the space and air. The present document is a video drawn from the material gathered during the hours of filming. Added to the eurythmy movements is a spoken-word text. Tonal accents from the violin, bring an additional thread to the audible dialogue.
