Strut your stuff CabinFever! CabinFever Performance Company creates site-specific original dance and music pieces in people’s homes that incorporate the architecture of the home and the memories of the people who live in them. On last summer’s West Coast “Salutations” tour I shot a one hour documentary which Creative Director Elana Jacobs and Musical Director Doug Barber edited this past fall. With three sold out screenings in Seattle and Boston and a whole slew of exciting press, we embarked on this summer’s East Coast tour titled “Arms Length Wonders”. From July 14 – August 3, we carravaned through Cape Cod, Woodstock, Isle La Motte and Boston in our old family Volvo and a rented Rav 4.

Isle La Motte might be the most idyllic place I’ve ever been. Way up in Northern Vermont along the Canadian border, the small storybook island has resisted the passage of time. In the Archipelago of the Champlain Islands, this Neverland was our home for one week. Pictured Above: The company in tech rehearsal blocking lighting with the sunset.

Strange Design: Of all the summer homes in New England, Doug’s grandparents rented a lakeside house coincidentally up the road from our performance home. Doug’s mom further surprised him by driving up from Chatham the night of the show.
