Seeing Cues: One Flat Thing, reproduced

Complicated and mesmerizing, One Flat Thing, reproduced follows a cueing system that unfolds in a rapidly shifting network of relationships. As mentioned in an earlier blog post, the music does not direct the piece; the dancers direct the piece. Time is organized as dancers give and receive cues, collectively determining the flow of the dance.

Follow along as this cueing system is broken down from multiple perspectives with visual annotations.
