Performance footage. Full length.

Rust was commissioned by the American Dance Festival where it premiered in 1989. The piece was performed at the festival during three following seasons. It was revived again in 2009.

Rust was performed without music, but this video does not capture the sound of the dancers moving against the chain-link fence that was subtly amplified for the live performance. The original version of Rust was 15 minutes, but the speed of the video shown above has been doubled.
