Recycle Me, A New Interdisciplinary Performance Work by Charles Dennis Music by Sal Cataldi a.k.a. Spaghetti Eastern Music
Interdisciplinary artist, choreographer and performance artist Charles Dennis has created a new solo, performance work, "Recycle Me" which investigates the effect that plastic garbage and waste is having on the human psyche and environment. Charles Dennis has collected plastic waste that has been consumed in his household and stored it for use in live performance. In “Recycle Me” -
Charles physically interacts with the plastic and has choreographed a duet with plastic. Part of this choreography includes the building of a sculpture built of plastic garbage, creating a visual landscape that Charles dances through.
Guitarist/composer Sal Cataldi (a.k.a. Spaghetti Eastern Music) has created an original score for solo electric guitar that will be played live to accompany the performance. The duo first collaborated on a reprise of Dennis’ well-known piece, “2x2x4” at the Avant-Garde-Arama Lands in Woodstock Festival of July 2021. Spaghetti Eastern Music’s recording of the three movement scores of “2x2x4” was released in November 2021 on Bandcamp and other streaming services. Chronogram Magazine called it “cool and inspired, melodic and transcendent, a wave of sonic warmth and light,” while Psychedelic Baby labels it “the perfect tonic for these troubled times.”
Charles Dennis co-founded the legendary New York City performance venue P.S. 122 in 1980. Charles’ work is interdisciplinary, includes elements of dance, theater, visual art and media and has been described by Dancemagazine as “physical theater”. Charles’ work has been presented in art centers, colleges, community centers and theaters worldwide. Born and raised in New York City he now lives in Hurley, NY.
