      • What is it?: A stage full of guitar amps calls to be treated as a choreography. SCAPE of GRACE is a choreographed concert, a rock meditation, a dance piece for guitar amps and human performers. Within the landscape of human and amp bodies, with the sound and movement that escape from both, SCAPE of GRACE is an attempt at staging a choreography of symbiosis. Meeting and melding with the dynamics and energies that the two entities produce, the affect is found in the mysterious and the obvious, in their mass and their nothingness.
