a dance concerning itself with history and memory [full] (2013)

A dance that attempts to understand the ways we collect, archive and curate the past, then embraces the chaos that follows from unnaming/disorganizing, and recontextualizing history and memory. The full length work featured audience participation and a worm duet for two sleeping bags.
