Tickle the Sleeping Giant # 9 (the ambien piece) (2009)

"Tickle the Sleeping Giant" begins a quasi-scientific long-term experiment, which questions the definitions and strategies of choreographic practice: A group of performers take Ambien, America's most popular sleeping pill, and lie down on the floor. The spectators walk around them, watching the sleep movements - of the objects.
