Could you tell us how this electronic theatre looked, how were the three screens
placed? Next to each other at the back of stage (film theatre?). How much
negative space in-between? Why was the piece titled "hand-drawn SPACES?"

How was the audience response or response during the discussion? Did Merce
indicate that he was doing more of this animation work now (making it easier to
travel work without dancers?). Were any of the dancers present to comment?
just wondering.
