Meyoucycle (me-you-cycle) is a political science fiction fantasy concert musical about expression in the age of hyper-capitalism and technological mediation. Personal ads and old-school letters, chat-bots, tweets, poetic terrorism, untameable rants, sound, image, song and dance collide in a rumination on contemporary and near-future life and the intense forces and interfaces that shape it.

The title “Meyoucycle” is a near homonym for “musical,” as if pronounced with a strange accent, which is to say that Meyoucycle creates something foreign to what can be identified as a musical, but with familiar ingredients. The piece combines music, dance, and text; and it seems to tell a story: in the near future, a group of poetic terrorists and emotional hackers have all dropped into anonymity. They dwell in the Dark – the dark web, the dark woods, the unknowns, the subconscious, the intuitive shadow of hidden knowledges. They escape the all-pervasive system of communications media that expropriates expressions between people and transforms it into profit. In order to maintain true freedom of expression and prevent that others profit from their every move, they choose to lose their identity and transform themselves constantly. Sliding through different genres of performance and music, inhabiting different forms of speech and physical appearance, they generate a continually shifting horizon of possible meanings, constantly escaping fixity.

Meyoucycle is a song-cycle written in collaboration between choreographer/performer Eleanor Bauer and musician/composer Chris Peck. Bauer and Peck have worked together for many years, over great distance. They learned to use the reality of distance and digital communication actively. Processing various source-materials from magazine articles to dreams, folding in three contributions from absent guest song-writers, developing the choreography with the performers and musical arrangements in dialogue with Ictus ensemble, the material itself is a churning cycle of me’s and you’s. As a “me-you-cycle,” the performance ultimately acknowledges that all understandings in the theater are created somewhere between the stage and the public.
