Visible Sketch (11:30) is an interactive media/dance performance for three movers/vocalists. We use “sketches” to describe each major performance of the piece, referring to an iterative creative process that resists perfectionist temptations. Furthermore, we use language convention of software versioning to point to its continued transformation throughout the development of this multi-disciplinary work.
In their joint statement about Visible Sketch v.3, David Dorfman, Virginia Johnson and Tiffany Mills called the work “an imaginistic evocation of a unique world inhabited by committed mover/vocalists whose transformative journey visits a series of evolutionary states.” These states are built around the poetic phenomenon of visibility. In this vein, “Visible Sketch” explores concealing/revealing in contexts of multiple relationships: individual and ensemble, body and self, part and whole, knowing and naiveté.
