Writing on Gordon Hall’s STAND AND in PAJ


Last fall I had the pleasure of going to one of Gordon Hall‘s performances (in collaboration with lots of lovely people). I felt/thought lots of things and decided to write with it. PAJ was kind enough to publish it.

“The performers moved through the court as if cruising for a provisional formal relation rather than a trick: cruising for a line, a shape, an object, a wall, a body, relation, an arrangement.”
