Like Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello before them, Asimina Chremos and Laura Peterson have said “bah!” to the enormity of the lower 48 and collaborated remotely across state lines.  It all started when, as legend has it, Peterson happened upon a video shot by HMS Media in the spooky confines of an empty Athenaeum.  Peterson took it upon herself to learn the solo off the video–like those rascally kids and their Beyoncé, only an order of magnitude more intricate–and then, following some interwebbing and a few brief Chicago visits by Peterson, voilà:  A world-premiere duet!  Aptly titled Verbatim, the twosome will present their 45-minute piece February 6, 7 and 8 at 8pm (Sunday at 7pm) at Link’s Hall with a lighting design by Chris Wooten.  It’s a big weekend for dance, I know, but check this out:  You can see Japan Dance Now at Columbia Thursday, Asimina and Laura Friday, and Batsheva on Saturday.  That’s what I’m doing, anyway.
