World Stage artistic director Tina Rasmussen discusses Ame Henderson/Public Recordings’ what we are saying

Ame Henderson is no stranger to World Stage. In 2010, her company, Public Recordings, premiered relay, a performance that blurred the often hard-and-fast line between audience and performer.

Pushing off from relay, what we are saying expands Public Recordings’ experimental repertoire using language and movement to explore the possibility of a leaderless togetherness. A huge room filled with chairs is the obstacle necessitating a unified strategy from the performers and the audience. How we do it is everyone’s guess.

“What’s really different about Ame’s approach is that she looks at choreography almost as a social experiment,” says Tina Rasmussen, in the video below.
