Kinetic Sculpture/Performance, 45 minutes
Two lovers carry on a conversation. This conversation is not only verbal (intimate and sometimes banal exchanges of words), but also physical (using improvisation and familiar touch) and material (implementing objects: human and material). A third party cuts in, creating “accommodations” to help them maintain difficult positions. As these makeshift prosthetics assimilate into their physical vocabulary, does it change the way we see their ability and inter-dependency? The pair continues to shift and change positions in relationship to each other and the objects. How then do prior accommodations rendered obsolete or turn into obstacles? In turn how are they re-adapted into the “conversation”?
A piece that probes the speculative, fluid and at times inarticulable space of need.
