Inspired by the modern dance heritage of Merce Cunningham, and the element of chance composition by John Cage, a modern dance performance has been choreographed for an outdoor setting for (Re)Happening 2014. Working with a papermaker, a hand-harvested and processed mulberry tree bark paper installation will be the focal point for the performance. The costumes are designed to tie in with the ideas of Cage’s classic definition of indeterminacy using handmade paper.
