Dancing is existing. - Gertrude Stein

A part of the March Music Moderne 2012 festival, Liminal performance group curates Liminal presents Gertrude Stein, an immersive multimedia performance installation in response to the writings of 20th century modernist master Gertrude Stein. Celebrating the sensual musicality of Stein’s own spoken language, as well as many of the musical settings of her texts, Liminal again brings together the best of Portland’s diverse arts scenes. Luminaries from every discipline join forces to create a total sensory music experience in a warehouse performance environment.

Virgil Thomson’s Capital Capitals becomes a video-opera in the hands of Leo and Anna Daedalus; director Camille Cettina and composer John Berendzen premier One Dancing, an original music-theatre piece based on Stein’s portrait of Isadora Duncan; Doug Theriault (sound) and Stephen Miller (video) turn Stein’s Plays into a media environment, David Abel performs ambulatory readings of her early works, and Sandra Gibbons shows her Tender Buttons series of comic panels. Other collaborators include JoAnn Johnson (performance), Margie Boule and Andre Flynn (voice), Stephen Alexander (piano), Bryan Markovitz and Ben Purdy (installation), Jen Raynak (sound), James Yeary (performative bartending), and many more.
