A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST
" the work relies on an integrated solo practice of being, sounding, and dancing that turns the cultural milieu of a space inside out. i seek an exhumation of myself and the audience that causes us to question why and how we are here in an art space together.
rather than paint social commentary on the canvas of possibility that is the performance, i plumb the depths of being-with-others and being-in-my-body to bring out what lies underneath.
i handle my history of transience, trauma, and internalized class warfare in and through performing; the myths of refugees, petty criminals, white trash and army wives are transformed into a collaboration with everyone in the room." - Lorene Bouboushian
