On this episode of West Texas Talk, Marfa Public Radio's Elise Pepple and curator Jennifer Burris Staton talk with dancers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener. The dancers met while in the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and now perform together in non-traditional spaces, such as barns, abandoned buildings and, now, ranch land. Mitchell and Riener discuss their ideas around ritual, improvisation, and blurring the barriers between performers and audience members.
