Nick Farhi and Steven Stallings (with Morgan Griffin, Matthew McAuley, Ruth Fish, Ludwig Persik)
The Seven Walled City of Jericho
Performance of musical instruments, one painted rug, choreographed temporal and reactionary dance

A labyrinth depicting the seven-walled city of Jericho, inspired by a map that was rescued by the Sassoon family and has been kept in a vault since the 1910s, serves as the site of activation for this multidisciplinary performance. The labyrinth, painted on a carpet beneath the performers, is drawn from happenstance of sound and movement that is both improvised and representational, a diagram of ceremonial research and discourse between practitioners. Musicians Ludwig Persik and Matthew Macauley experiment in response to choreography by Morgan Griffin with performers Ruth Fish, Hilary Ives, and Hiroka Nagai. Costumes and uniforms by Nina Gurbanova. Set design, percussion, and ensemble organized by Nicholas Farhi and Steven Stallings.
