Lisa Fay and Jeff Glassman:
Fay and Glassman are composing and performing movement-based theatre artists known for applying complex composed structures to ordinary human behavior. In their compositional work for theatre “natural-looking” behavior is subjected to contortion, subversion and convolution. Naturalism shows its socially constructed face when viewed through imposed compositional filtering.
Lisa Fay and Jeff Glassman Duo:
Fay and Glassman have been collaborating since 1991. They create short, dense and troublesome compositions. Often appearing in concerts of new music, they travel as a performance duo with a program of ten works, teach workshops in residencies, and create works for other ensembles. Most of their compositions for movement-based theatre are conceived as scores in notations designed for each piece. Members of the Network of Ensemble Theatres, they are based in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois.
