Incidents in the Life of an Ohio Youth…
- Main contributor
"Incidents in the Life of an Ohio Youth as He Marched to the Sea and Beyond and Was Witness to Minor and Extraordinary Events" (full title), Lerman's only commission from a ballet company, created for BalletMet in Columbus, Ohio, during a 1993 sabbatical from Dance Exchange. Juxtaposes history of General Sherman's March to the Sea with 20th Century memories of a current-day narrator. Some texts are excerpted from the unpublished diary of an Ohio soldier preserved in an Ohio archive. Two performances are compiled on this recording: that of April 1, 1993, with tracking of action, and April 2, 1993, in a full stage view shot with a stationary camera.
