The experimental interplay of the text, voice and performer within Dust, lends itself well to the construction of an inventive and playful layering of projected imagery. Merging the artist into the mise en scène through elements of live projection enable the creation of an experimental visual landscape that explores the beautiful complexities of Robert Ashley's score.
