  1. This piece is very symbolic of life, following a rhythm and routine, repeated day after day. Collaboration is a key part of this work, which also plays into the symbolic nature of the friendship of Sam Falls and Jamie Kanzler. I read excerpts from another interview with Falls about the work (http://www.artnews.com/2015/09/29/sam-falls-the-kitchen-september-spring/), in which he discusses working with the dancers and how it was very nerve wracking the first night of the performance, because he was so used to working alone on his pieces. That loss of control is very important symbolically for the piece, as well, considering the death of his close friend at such a young age.

  2. This is a very strong and symbolic piece. I admire his commitment to remembering his friend. I enjoy the performance and how it displays his typical work about how touch and the passage of time alter materials. I bet this would be special to see in person.
