Natascha Greenwalt Murphy received 2010 GAP Award funding to cover the costs of rehearsal space and artist stipends to expand her 12-minute piece Tethered Apparitions into a fully-developed, evening-length work. Tethered Apparitions is inspired by the decorum of the Victorian era and its use of ornate decoration to mask not only our human forms but our behaviors as well. Embellishments such as luminescent art objects, an original orchestral score, and layered costumes absorb its dancers in a secret world that becomes vulnerable and yet more powerful as these elements are slowly stripped away. As a full-length work, it will feature complete exploration of and integration with its art objects, an extended musical score, and additional costume layers.
