Half Straddle’s Ghost Rings tour continues to California! Catch us at Stanford Live with the original band back together: Chris Giarmo, Erin Markey, Tina Satter, and Kristen Sieh. More info and tickets here.
Drawing from the cache of video projects and documentation that Half Straddle has been creating since the company’s inception in 2008, this new presentation juxtaposes previously unscreened excerpts from the Half Straddle video archive in an installation format.
“Cadences” functions as both documentation and a deliberate poetics of particular performers and performances as the people and work have moved—and move—through time. The piece becomes a record, then loop, of experiments, physical changes, and an ongoing interrogation of a kind of community creating together.
Featuring Jess Barbagallo, Eliza Bent, Becca Blackwell, Enver Chakartash, Emily Davis, Dylan Dawson, Gracie Gardner, Erin Markey, Hanna Lea Novak, Paul Pontrelli, Naomi Raddatz, Julia Sirna-Frest, Lucy Taylor

Our benefit concert at Joe's Pub in October turned out to be one of our favorite company events ever. Kimberly Clark (Chris Giarmo's fabulous alter ego) led a live band and the Half Straddle company singing original songs from 8 years of Half Straddle shows.
We were joined by very special guests and friends including Heather Christian, Jim Fletcher, Hannah Heller, Mike Iveson, Jo Lampert, Paul Pontrelli, Lucia Roderique, James Sprang, and Lucy Taylor.
Here are some of our favorite photos from the night!
