Hit Points
Inspired by John Zorn’s Cobra, Hit Points is an improvisational game piece augmented by the use of cellphones to receive and communicate instructions silently and without overt theatrical gestures. A projection behind the performers informs the audience of the connections and associations between performers, providing an additional layer of legibility to the performance. Each performer can make an ensemble play for a certain amount of time, but every action or instruction will drain that performer’s “health”. When your health reaches 0, you’re out of the game. Premiere: Mills College (5.3.2018) with Tony Gennaro (vibraphone), Seiyoung Jang (flute), Greg Kappes (piano), Rowan Matthews (voice), Joel Nelson (tabletop guitar), Matt Robidoux (electric guitar), and Marc Zollinger (electric guitar)
