With PLAY/PAUSE, Marshall embraces the collisions of high art and pop culture to create the ultimate mash-up: postmodern dance-theater meets rock-and-roll on both real and virtual stages. Popular dance and indie rock form the undercurrent for an exploration of our consumption of pop culture. The performance is combined and counterpointed by video that helps take audiences in unexpected directions and deepens their experience. PLAY/PAUSE features an original score by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang that merges the iconic pop sound of electric guitar with abstract rhythms.
