Now that you've had some time with Peter Silberman's Impermanence, we wanted to start sharing something very special with you. Over the course of a single day Peter, and the director Derrick Belcham, captured a performance film in the architect Philip Johnson's Glass House. The film consists of stripped back performances of the songs on Impermanence by Peter accompanied by the dancers Rebecca Margolick and Stephanie Crousillat.
"It is rare to find a project in which each element is a person, practice and aesthetic that I love completely. The sound of Peter’s performance reflecting off the surfaces and enclosures, Rebecca and Stephanie’s spatial relationship with the architecture of the Glass House, the visual reflection of the House itself, the exchange of words and chords with the bodies of the dancers augmented by Natasha Takemoto and Joy Wolcott’s perfectly-toned garments created a beautiful world to explore with the camera. These dynamic partnerships allowed for theater-level exploration as the events were captured in a single take and single shot." - Derrick Belcham
The film is split into 6 parts, and will be released once a fortnight. The first three are available to watch below.
He'll be back for a run of shows in the UK & Europe in April.
