  • Program notes: 

    NESTING is Terri Hron’s third Bird on a Wire solo project. In 2010, Terri began clearing brush
    and cleaning a small stand of forest on Île Audet, a small island on a lake in the Appalachian hills
    of Quebec, in an effort to improve the health and accessibility. As a way to deal with the deadfall
    and refuse material, she made nest-like structures as invitations for wildlife both real and
    mythical. In 2013, she invited a number of artists to come and interact with these structures,
    recording and collecting these activities. Finally in 2016, she collaborated with three
    choreographers – Lina Cruz, Hannah Fischer and Adam Kinner – to create a set of pieces woven
    together with the strands and memories that had been collected, bringing the wild life of the
    forest onto the stage. While there is no narrative, the roots on the island highlighting different
    physical and emotional connection to the environment, to our stewardship of it and the
    inspiration it brings.

  • Technical specs: 

    NESTING is best performed in a space where video can be projected in such a way that the
    screen or projecting surface comes down to ground level. Most places have suspended projectors,
    and this is also possible, but it is special to have the projector lower down.
    The performance space does not have to be very large, anywhere upwards of 5x5m, but
    preferably at least 8x8m.
    I can provide:
    • Computer to feed a projector (HDMI preferred) and stereo sound output (2 XLR)
    OR a video file to be played on the house computer
    I need:
    • Stereo diffusion (or multiples welcome), preferably with sub
    • Cables to allow for the stereo output from my sound card to the mixing board -
    • Projector
    • Screen or suitable wall for projection
    There is no live amplification in this performance.
