Steven Reker
Open House

 
 

Architecture doubles as instrument in this compelling collage of offbeat pop songs and live construction from the band Open House, inspired by Henry Miller’s novella The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder. Building as they play, the band members, led and directed by Steven Reker (People Get Ready), coax an array of uncanny sounds from a set of amplified eight-foot-long sheets of Styrofoam wall insulation, erected into teetering structures that vibrate, hum, squeak, and seem destined to collapse.

 

Directed by Steven Reker
Sound design by Ryan Seaton and Dan Foley
Lighting design by Vincent Vigilante

Co-Commissioned by BAM and American Dance Institute (ADI)
