Little of More
A Little of More was created in part during a residency at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center in New York in April of 2007. A 35-minute duet version of the piece premiered at the New Original Works Festival at the REDCAT in Los Angeles in July 2007. This performance at Nohspace is the premier of the full-length piece, including four actors from the USA, Belgium and Singapore. A Little of More will subsequently be shown in May 2008 at the Watermill Center in New York as a part of the group’s second residency at the center.
General Review

Notes: Built on a strong foundation of codified movement, the performers interweave original Shaker writings and songs to create a richly detailed work of individual struggle and metaphysical transcendence. A Little of More was created in the traditions of Etienne Decroux, a theatre revolutionary of the 20th century who devised a system of movement allowing the actor to embody thought. By using this language of abstract movement and daily physical actions, the performers present a work that is spare, elemental and universal.
