Cacophony

A 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. An improvisation for Movement Research Open Performance. Video documentation by Chris Carlone.

Dream Navel

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."

For Movement Research Open Performance. Music by Jarryd Lowder, and Beethoven played by Glenn Gould. Video by Chris Carlone. Performance contains partial nudity.
