Axle Contemporary Presents
Evaluation:  Banal to Transcendent
By Mara Leader
Music by Jason Goodyear
Choreography by Jocelyne Danchick

Evaluation:  Banal to Transcendent is a multimedia performance that explores ideas of surveillance. Multiple elements of experimental video and sound emanate from the interior and exterior of the Axle truck. Dancers perform and interact with audience members, repeating rhythmic pedestrian movement and sequentially modulating time. A video camera records and projects to the exterior world the spontaneous, secretive interaction in the truck, luring the audience inside. As audience members exit the truck they are asked to take a quick survey.
