The performers of Teeth construct the landscape that they are moving inside of. They simultaneously navigate channels of movement together and also create those channels. The lighting for the work is being developed by Shana Crawford, and interwoven in the movement is also the navigation of lighting structures that open and collapse the geography of the space. The sound landscape is being devised and performed live by ALEXA GRAE. The movement explores undulations, body waves and different scales of those movements. I am inspired by the image of a river delta and specifically the dam removal at the Elwha River in Port Angeles Washington (my hometown). Over ten years I have watched the coastline and mouth of the Elwha shift and change alongside this removal. These changes remind me of a group–how just bringing a group of people together in a room creates infinitely more possibilities than my solitary mind can imagine.
This is a live performance in the BAX Theater, which will also be livestreamed for remote access at 4:30 on April 30th.
Please note that the BAX Theater is located on the second and third floors of the building and currently, there is no elevator or ramp. While we are actively working on a permanent solution and are committed to providing a fully ADA compliant space, we are not quite there yet.

BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange is a multigenerational arts organization nurturing creative expression and artistic process through education, residencies, and performance at the intersection of arts and social justice.
The exceptional artists who participate in the AIR Program at BAX are provided with an artistic home base for a one to two year period, offering them a tangible sense of permanence and place. BAX AIR is tailored to each artist’s unique needs, process and artistic practice. Its structure develops peer support, collaborative problem-solving and constructive criticism. Each 2021/22 Artist in Residence receives 300 free hours of rehearsal space per year and an annual stipend.
This is the third installment of works shared by these resident artists over the course of the 2021/22 season. Whether you’ve followed their creative developments all year, or are just tuning in, join us to celebrate these extraordinary artists and their artistic journeys this year. Each presentation will take place in the BAX Theater throughout April and May.
