A game piece is a concept taken from experimental music (specifically the avant-garde composer, John Zorn) that can best be described as intricately structured and controlled improvisation, with no prearranged sequence of events, that unfolds by way of rules and commands enacted by the players themselves, similar to a sports game. 

Historically, the game piece has been limited to exploring the discipline of music.. -WEAVER- endeavors to add a second discipline to the game structure, dance. The objective being, from a compositional perspective, to muddy up the boundaries between two seemingly discrete artistic practices, dance and music. Though these forms share a common root, we often see one as serving the other in a hierarchical fashion and rarely ever as an interconnected and inseparable whole. The goal here is to explore the distance between these forms and the ways in which this distance plays out on the bodies of the participants and the audience alike.

-WEAVER- is deeply inspired by the collage works of multi-disciplinary Dada artist Kurt Schwitters, who used everyday objects and printed, language based, materials with abstract constructivist painting methodologies to create a revolutionary cubism that smashed together the seemingly discreet worlds of high-modernist vanguardism and anti-art Dadaism to create a visual language that evaded all preconceived notions of what both an artist and a work of art can and should do.
