FearHaus (2021) and FearHaus 360 (2020)
Choreographed and directed by Bessie Award winner Stacy Dawson Stearns and cinematographer Jonathon Stearns, this virtual haunted house extravaganza features music by Ian Stahl.
Love Gasoline! (2017)
Love Gasoline, choreographed and directed by Bessie Award winner Stacy Dawson Stearns, features music by Ian Stahl. Dance-theater devised from Marcel Duchamp’s famously unfinished work: "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (also known as The Large Glass)". Love Gasoline! is an infernal and absurd physical rendering of Duchamp’s portrayal of erotic love and desire. A striking encounter with Duchamp’s iconic Nude, Love Gasoline! strips its own form to reveal elaborate and unconventional acts of desire, performed by the bride and her many bachelors. Cyclical, fetishy and unapologetically visceral, Love Gasoline! shatters and reflects the very idea of love and its many games and guises. LG premiered at the REDCAT New Original Works Festival in Los Angeles, CA, and has a month run at the Edinburg Fringe Festival. lovegasoline.com
Dreaming Awake (2017)
Dreaming Awake is a surreal audio-visual concert combining improvised and composed music for voice and electronics with live video projections. Stahl worked with lighting designer and producer Jesse Fryery and projectionist Kamyi Lee to create this unique experience. The audience sits around a 12' by 12' cube that encapsulates Stahl, the singer and performer, projecting videographic dreamscapes as the concert unfolds.
Relic/Resonance is a collaboration between Ian Stahl and Sam Chen that combines paintings and composed and improvised music. The written scores and visuals were developed together and each influenced the other in their development. The scores and paintings are then reinterpreted through the performer's improvisations during the live performance. The recording of the performance becomes the installation as it is played back into the space.
