Satellite is an aerial solo for dancer-aerialist Rachel Salzman which takes Jody Sperling’s fabric explorations “a La Loie,” into a vertical dimension. For this piece, composer Quentin Chiappetta composed a score charged with electronic rhythms that gives an edgy ambiance for the angelic cloud-like imagery Salzman evokes. This project was developed during a residency made possible by the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics’ Emerging Artist Commissioning Program. The work premiered at the company’s 10th Anniversary Season at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in February 2010.
