Grind – Graham

The ever reliable Tansy Davies provided the third piece of the evening. Her 2006 Integra commission Grind Show picked up the slack of the previous with its tight conception inspired by a Goya piece where she superimposes two scenes/musics over each other in a shadowing, discursive effect. The performance oscillated between the night music and the humorous and nervy dances on the surface, playing foreground and background off in a compelling exchange. The piece is tightly conceived and very well executed, and it was performed here with sharpness and intelligence.
