The poems in Ariadne/Dark Dark Shine are, as the starting poem says, "a lost/found/&-repeat narration. The arcing-thread—a-whip/lifeline/way/the-magical-gift-given/odd-bit—discovered in an old sewing basket. (Who sews nowadays?) No enchanted sword or mirror—how much braver to pocket the spool of thread, head out, put your finger to a pulse and count. A puzzle sometimes, which simple thing reveals a boon.” The question posed, "labyrinth or circle?”.

Mt. Holyoke College & Smith College
Choreographer Bebe Miller set her classic work 'The Hendrix Project' at the 2 colleges this past fall. The original 21' x 21' painted floor I created for the work is at the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute at Ohio State University, and could not be borrowed for the performances, so we re-thought the visuals for the work using my original drawing as the starting point. The photo shows the results, with fluorescent tape marking the floor boundaries providing the map landscape for the dance and a projection of the floor drawing providing color and atmosphere as the lights run through their paces.
