Cassandra Miller’s Guide brings together two trios and a duo of mixed live and pre-recorded performers from across the country, Jessie Marino’s SOTU is a wild collage of choreography and word, Martin Iddon’s hamadryads features wine glasses and five live performances synchronized online, and finally Kayleigh Butcher and Bethany Younge’s Her Disappearance features voices filtered through PVC pipes.
