Ryan Dean creates work under the name The Live Instructional Video . His 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival show Lazerjuice was a multidisciplinary work of modular theatre that mixed elements of dance and electronic music with audience isolation, sketch comedy, puppetry, and movement. Also, it took place in space and had invisible robots. It surprised those who saw it and left a lasting impression.
The highlight of Lazerjuice was a 20 minute solo dance that landed at the end of the show. In this episode of Twin Cities Song Story Ryan Dean talks about the music that was created for that dance, a piece he collectively calls Space Dance. He thinks through his philosophy on performance, how he comes to create music and how he is continually striving to marry music and dance.
