Tripping the Video Fantastic in the Tracks of an Ageless Sprite


Yves Musard
Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church
Yves Musard has performed in New York since 1979, but in silhouette he can be mistaken for a child, so winsome are his carriage and aura. In Galaxie Pearl, he flitted through the St. Mark's sanctuary, tracing circles and diamond shapes in a stiff-legged prance, arranging himself in poses with a yogic intensity. He toyed shadow puppet-style with a cobbled street, one of Kimberly Simpson's many projected videoscapes of Paris, New York, and Marseilles. David Watson's intriguing sound ranged from distant rumblings and blips to the aural assault of a live bagpipe. Guests performed solos in a final section that capped a long program in need of editing. Sally Silvers made daredevil maneuvers confined in a cone of light. Musard began and ended the concert by wiggling a red rope, one end in each hand, implying that every action has a consequence to be considered.
