Echo in The Body is a short performance piece reflecting my ongoing project of finding the place of the body and movement in the practice of psychoanalysis.
I'll be doing a Schreber-influenced movement performance as part of LIVE Schreber! Schreber LIVE: an immersive, multimedia, 2-hour event inspired by Daniel Paul Schreber's book Memoirs of My Nervous Illness.
'Cacophony' is a 10 min. solo work in regress, or digress—discord in a body not having got it together, a fragmented figure, limbs akimbo, a body not in agreement with itself, parts breaking down, a clunky decay, like a Beckett character, seeking to stop by going on. Until the bell of silence.
As part of an informal showing of works in progress, on the program with two other artists. Discussion to follow. More info about this event can be found here.

Dream Navel: a 10 min. solo
The title derives from the following passage in Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams:
"There is often a passage in even the the most thoroughly interpreted dream which has to be left obscure; this is because we become aware during the work of interpretation that at that point there is a tangle of dream-thoughts which cannot be unraveled and which moreover adds nothing to our knowledge of the content of the dream. This is the dream's navel, the spot where it reaches down into the unknown."
