Research for this project began with Colby College students in Fall 2011 and substantive draft premiered at ICA Boston under the auspices of Summer Stages Dance in July 2012. A Simple Form of Matter explores simplicity and specificity. It includes extended, idiosyncratic movement passages learned, with respect, from a three year old. It also includes text adapted from Clifford Odets. The piece deals with the pace of change, and presents it at times like a long, slow rumbling, an engine revving, glacial shifts or sudden bursts.
