This project took place in New York, Austin, Minneapolis, Iowa City, Hanover NH, and Tempe AZ. At each site, Marshall and the company worked hands-on with thirty local volunteers, many of them unfamiliar with dance, over an intense week of rehearsals, culminating in a 30-minute performance. Spectators at an Event was inspired by news journalist Weegee’s photographs, which were incorporated in the production, as was original video by Christopher Kondek.
