The Foundry

Within Once


Created by: Alex Ketley, Christian Burns, Andrea Basile, Nick Yagoda, and Maurya Kerr (2003)

Commissioned in part through a Residency at THE YARD on Martha’s Vineyard

Music, video, text, and dance were created by the full company

The company had a month long residency in a bucolic part of Martha’s Vineyard on the East Coast of the United States. The piece reflected on many things, most notably the recent devision between co-founders Christian Burns and Alex Ketley, but also became a reference to what felt like existing in a fairytale. Much of the work was created throughout the island, and documented with video, and then recontextualized to be used in performance.
