    Tha-at’s right is a response to an idiosyncratic review of Stravinsky’s final ballet Agon, written by dance critic and poet Edwin Denby in 1959. The piece takes this review as a choreographic script for a new performance by interpreting Denby's outlandish metaphorical descriptions of dance and music literally. This process of translation was realised collaboratively for 16mm film with a group of three dancers and An assembly, a new music ensemble. 

    Commissioned by An assembly.
