Can you construct an encapsulated environment, an alternate space that holds infinite complexity within finite boundaries? How about a world created through a dissociative environment, based in human interactions, where many things are suggested but nothing is resolved?
Within this environment, I want to look at all materials present and bring everything to the surface. Scheduling the rehearsal process and who is present becomes structural material. The space is marked with objects, memorializing an event. Lines between bodies are drawn with string. What is present but unseen, intangible?
Included in that is of course movement, aspects of visual design, but most importantly people and relationship. And when I ask the question of what rests beneath with respect to the individuals involved, there is not just the physical interior, emotional interior, and experiential feeling but also all of the consciousness and story that they bring with them through the door to rehearsal. I’m interested in the mess underneath, inside, and around. This project is the beginning of me taking my work and process apart - four versions of the dance led to me pivoting to solo research and the development of action is primary.
