We began in the years prior working on tables negotiating what we were calling (naively perhaps) the Art of Peace — In Art of Peace (Part One): Invitation Diane Roberts joined to animate a dialogue that was incorporated into the performance. The moving tables we danced on were like land masses moving in space and time and carrying story. They transformed by the end and were tables once again to negotiate, eat, drink and dialogue around. Amazing – dialogue as art.
In Art of Peace (Part Two): Arrival you see early work in the studio with collaborators (listed in the video) — we wanted to dig deeper into the ancestry to inform performance — so we began in an arrivals process before moving to the Art of Peace creation process — to share our arrival stories — to see how they could interact within a design and performance aesthetic.
