11 Jun Board Game
I have been getting the new piece, Theseus and the Minotaur, ready for its premiere in Taipei at the end of June. This is the first time that I have attempted to create a game (a board game!) as a piece, and I’m really excited to see how it will turn out. I’m looking forward to seeing what works, what can be improved, and then bring it back over to NYC sometime next year for a follow-up performance.
My colleague David Jones at York College is a scenic designer, and has graciously offered to help create the game board for the piece. Here are some photos of the game board-in-progress. The board will be placed on the floor (and can be changed for every game!) between the two percussionists.
