A spectacle in three acts, Court/Garden is a multimedia, dance and live music performance taking its inspiration from the imperial ballets of Louis XIV’s French Court and the participatory practices of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Through operatic, spectacle-driven vocabulary, the work reflects on how we assemble and how our consumption and creation of images reflects our role as citizens. Like other works by a canary torsi, an anagram of choreographer Yanira Casto’s name, audience actions impact the outcome of this experienced work.
