“A beauty of a show…what it feels like to be alive” - The Dance Current
92 year-old dance archivist David Vaughan and 31 year-old artist Pepper Fajans explore their cross-generational friendship, developed while working together on the final world tour of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Co. Venture is a duet in which the performers brings their experiences of adventure and camaraderie to a dance theater incorporating sculpture, puppetry, and storytelling.
Co. Venture was developed in collaboration with visual designer Maiko Kikuchi, sound designer Joey Wolfslau, lighting designer Davison Scandrett, and director Chris Green. Celebrated Cunningham Company alumna Holley Farmer and dancer/choreographer David Neumann collaborated with Vaughan and Fajans on the creative process to develop the New York performance.
