Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture

Check out this new excerpt video of Alice Gosti‘s Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture. We were happy to have helped Alice get funding to support this very cool project, which asked: “Do objects imbued with so much of our worth start to take over and take on a life of their own?”

Rosy Simas Danse

We’ve been working with Rosy Simas Danse since 2016, helping to craft writing that captures the unique qualities of her work with physical movement, time-based media, sound, and objects for both stage and installation. Now we’re thrilled to be adding project/tour management to our work together. As Sheila Regan of City Pages said, “It takes a special kind of performer to bewitch an audience with stillness. Rosy Simas has that gift. An articulate dancer, Simas has the ability to suffuse the smallest movements, or even complete motionlessness, with a captivating aura.”
