My Body as the Topic Coming Around Again // Vol 2 (In)Visibility (2022)

Part of the larger project, My Body as the Topic Coming Around Again, Vol. 2 uses satire and horror to exaggerate the constant (in)visibility of white female bodies. With looping devices and absurd, fragmented text, it disarms the viewer as it amplifies the power negotiations at work on stage and in life. As the volume continues it breaks apart as dancers question their own complicity and willingness to be seen.

Direction and Text: Rebecca Pappas
