From Notes Transcribed in the Dark (BeginAgain) Apr 3, 2014

Due to the fact that Tessa Hulls is cycling around Ghana on a grand adventure, it is my task to find a worthy co-responder for the next couple of On The Boards performances. For zoe | juniper’s performance BeginAgain, I was lucky enough to have Sierra Nelson (poet, performer) agree to help me. To set the stage for our collaboration, Sierra referred to the Wonder Twins: “I'll be form of an ice cube/words. You be form of an eagle/drawing.”

Interactions of solos, duets, groups and video projections were full of tension between characters of this abstract performance.

I saw zoe|juniper’s piece BeginAgain last evening and I thought it was beautiful.

-The reveal of the purple costume previously seen in promotion photos

-Peat moss 

-Movement which appeared to be like “Oh shoot what was I doing?”

-Unabashed ballet

-An 8th grade boy’s single voice crack

a spell binding reminder of an internal struggle Mar 28, 2014

Its easy to forget sometimes that the self is not a single unified thing but rather a confederation of different identities. There is who we were, who we want to be, who we actually are, and who we think we should be, all vying for control within our heads. Who we are is never one consistent identity but rather a constantly and sometimes painful shifting, blurring, and blending amalgamation of  many.

"Slow-motion reverie" – The Seattle Times reviews BeginAgain Mar 28, 2014

"Silhouettes, symmetries and shadow-actions drive the action in zoe ǀ juniper’s new evening-length piece, BeginAgain. That is, if 'action' is the best word to describe this slow-motion reverie.
