OK, you know how Forklift Dance's Allison Orr
takes urban infrastructural crews and sports teams and so on, and works their job-related movements into fantastic choreography, and then those actual workers and athletes perform the newly enhanced motions for the public? Remember the stunning Trash Project
and Power Up!
and so on? Well, inspired by the virtuosic movement of symphonic conducting, Orr has again
worked that process with just one person: the Austin Symphony Orchestra
's own Peter Bay
. And, continuing the usual Forklift goodness, the show will be accompanied by live music: An original score by Graham Reynolds
will be played by 13 musicians while Bay both conducts and embodies movements based abstractly on his conducting gestures
Jan. 30-Feb. 2. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 3pm. $24 and up.
