I was lucky enough to dance in this multidisciplinary installation/performance that explored and amplified the layered connections between limited vision and fragile memory in unique and complementary interpretations. VIVISECTION juxtaposed live performance and still archival imagery while allowing the audience to experience both the initial urge for archiving and the interpretive result of it.
Dancing in the dark and improvising with the grotesque has been one of the most rewarding and demanding (performing for 10 mins, every 15 mins, for 8 hours over one night) experiences to test the limits of my body.
