DRILL, a durational performance and installation by the artist Madeline Hollander, took place at Signal, NY in 2016 and featured 7 dancers and an original score by Celia Hollander. This audio is a studio recorded and adapted version from the 3 hour live score.
Note from Celia:
"Through the choreography and score, the performance intended to explore the boundaries between running a drill and a true emergency. The choreography was derived from evacuation procedure diagrams for museums, airplanes, universities, movie theaters, theme parks and other public structures and cultural institutions. The score was designed to cast different emotional contexts on the choreographic sequences, shifting from anxiety provoking soundscapes to predictable, harmonic sequences. The performance aimed to show the absurdity in preparing for chaos and the ways that an emergency becomes a type of performance."
