The whole time in the meanwhile.
conceived by Meg Foley in collaboration with Chris Forsyth and Lenore Doxsee

Thirdbird is pleased to present "The whole time in the meanwhile.", a twilight hour performance installation that uses the changing mood of sunset to create a shifting and immersive environment of movement, light, and sound.

Conceived by choreographer Meg Foley in collaboration with lighting designer Lenore Doxsee and composer Chris Forsyth, "The whole time in the meanwhile." resides in a place between visible and invisible, near and far.  In an expansive room continually re-imagined through color saturation and discretely spatial music,  the dance reframes the distinction between audience, performer and architecture. The dance is not happening to you but with you, the installation a container for an experience that magnifies how we feel, hear and see time passing through our senses: this moment versus that, this moment versus many.

Space is limited to 30 people per performance. Advanced purchase or reservations are strongly recommended.
No late seating.

Thirdbird is the not-entirely-new-but-newly-named wing of the shared endeavors of Anna Drozdowski (proprietor of Ladybird) and Dustin Hurt (founder of Bowerbird). It’s our way of sharing dance, music, and things between with one another and with you. A field guide to curiosities and bits of culture matter, an almanac of small pieces loosely joined. First hatched for the Blindspot Festival, thirdbird is a thing we are building – in good company - and slowly by design.
