The work is titled "Titlipur" and was a collaboration between Miriama Young, choreographer Sara Baird of Anemone Dance Theater, and video artist Lee Whittier. The piece is a real-time interactive dance performance that utilizes custom-made hardware and features a pair of accelerometers attached to the dancer's hands. The interactive sound component manipulates bird song samples of a bird endemic to the islands of New Zealand, the Tui, in real-time via basic stamp to a Max MSP patch. The choreography is drawn from the Butoh tradition and explores the human habitation of a bird-like form through movement, while the electronic soundscape provides the background accompaniment to Sara's structured interactive improvisation. The piece premiered in September 2003 at Dancespace Center in New York City and was later performed at the Puffin Room in New York City and as an installation at Gallery 138 in Chelsea, NYC.
