In his book The Poetics of Space, the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard writes about miniatures as “false objects that possess a true psychological objectivity.” That notion, along with Bachelard’s ideas about how the spaces we inhabit both reflect and shape us, inspired the images that set this choreography in motion. Created by Peggy Baker for Jacqueline Ethier in 2009, three story house will be performed in the AGO’s Carol and Morton Rapp Gallery, on the 5th floor.

three story house is one of four works that make up interior with moving figures. Performed in four different galleries throughout the AGO on May 11 and 18 at 7pm and on May 14 and 15 at 2pm, each will run for 70 minutes and will continue in an uninterrupted cycle for the length of the show. We encourage visitors to wander between the galleries and discover the next dance.
