Bastard Piece (2013) is a dance-theater work that meditates on doubling, tripling, and the ever-shifting nature of memory. An assemblage of fragments inspired by a box of old photos found in a basement, the piece unfolds according to a poetic logic that reveals unexpected resonances between seemingly disparate situations, relationships, and images.
Bastard Piece was performed September 11-21, 2013 as part of the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival. All performances took place at APT Studio 2 in Philadelphia.

"BASTARD PIECE is wholeheartedly halfhearted. It explores the fine line shared by outrageous and understated, clownish and genuine."
Julius Ferraro, phindie
