Published on Apr 4, 2014

Composed in November 1962, Pond is one of Patterson's earliest action scores, written for nine performers and inviting the spectator to become participant. Patterson constructs a grid, chalked on the floor, in which wind-up toys, typically frogs, move indeterminately and direct the participants' actions based on a set of accompanying instructions.

A part of Three Duets, Seven Variations, a special series for the Performa 13 biennial, pairing six intergenerational artists for seven programs. This program is organized by Adrienne Edwards, Performa, and Thomas J. Lax, The Studio Museum in Harlem. Co-organized by the Grey Art Gallery, NYU; The Studio Museum in Harlem; and Performa.
