(To catch you up if you’ve missed a few posts: This weekend I have my first rehearsals with Charlotte Adams, her dance troupe, and tuba genius John Manning at the University of Iowa in preparation for their fall Dance Gala at the end of October. Our improvisatory, collaborative piece begins with me lying on the floor, bottom of the stage, playing the opening lines of “Kaddish.”)
Tonight was our second rehearsal. I again recorded our run-through, and here is the opening segment of “Kaddish” from that recording. This time the recording quality is even worse, because I made it using iTalk on my iPhone, which was in my shorts pocket while I was playing.
