In Between, a participatory performance and site-specific light installation, which took place at the 2012 Transmodern Festival In this piece, two characters, played by Autumn Breaud and Melissa Webb, moved about the nighttime alley space, which was transformed by sculptural objects filled with blue light. They interacted with the audience, guiding up to 3 people at a time by the hand to sit upon round pillows, where they were each given light-emitting head-pieces and light-refracting glasses with which to watch the performers and take in the surrounding environment.
"In Between" was created in memory of Flores (Flo) McGarrell, a dear, longtime friend and collaborator who died in the Haitian Earthquake on January 12, 2010. It was intended to create a transcendent state within the viewer and to represent the moments experienced immediately following sudden death, as outlined by the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
