a rough outline, or to disclose partially (2014)

1 dancer; 45 minutes

a rough outline or to disclose partially is a 50 minute solo performance. Rigorous, minimalist, and laced with subtle humor, the piece proposes a fluid experience of the body as both aesthetic object and empathetic subject.

On a more practical note, the piece is designed for an intimate space with white walls, like a gallery or studio. It is lit by three free-standing lights, which I operate during the performance. Sound is run through a computer and speakers placed on a table in the performance space. The aesthetic of the piece is technically simple and driven by a sense of efficiency and transparency.
