THE SMOOTH WAX OF INGENUOUS SOULS
Live Performance, 40-minute solo - Choreographer
“We have an interval and then our place knows us no more” - Walter Pater, The Renaissance
A woman carrying a burden yields to memory, unfolding the space, with a desire to fall. Her wistful yearning for home, ruptured from it, as the shadows of evening deepen. Body parts and spiral streams as passages to self-possession.
“And in her tears shed in such absences there seemed always to be some soul-subduing foretaste of what her last tears might be. A system of visible symbolism interweaves itself through all our thoughts and passions; and irresistibly, little shapes, voices, accidents–the angle at which the sun in the morning fell on the pillow–become parts of the great chain wherewith we are bound.” - Walter Pater, The Child In The House
