Co-commissioned and presented by Baryshnikov Arts Centerwith generous support from the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.
Rachel Tess’s Souvenir Undone is an ongoing dance project that explores the relationship between architecture and choreography and choreographer and audience. The work more specifically delves into the concept of pre-existing institutional structures and how this design may impact the making and viewing of performance.

For River To River, Rachel Tess further investigates the relationships between the surrounding environments and the people occupying the space in Souvenir Undone, a site-specific work created in response to St. Cornelius Chapel. During the performance, dancers will move to the sounds of the city and adapt the choreography to the Chapel using constructed modules to move the existing architecture. In Souvenir Undone audiences will shift their vantage point throughout the performance.
