Current Form, 1999
The second part of what eventually would become a trilogy, Current Form looked at the California Coast for its initial inspiration. The piece was almost entirely created outside of traditional dance studios and was presented both in traditional theater settings as well as gallery spaces.
“By far the most intriguing is The Foundry, Alex Ketley and Christian Burns’ young company (less than a year old), which does wonderfully imaginative work with video and live dance. It’s the newest piece, Current Form is even more fun and fascinatingly mysterious that last fall’s Salt Flat Pieces. They are beautiful dancers, and there is no one else around who even comes close to their sophisticated intertwining of kinetic and visual imagery.”
