SENSATION/DISORIENTATION is an intimate dance performed in the round for six multigenerational (15–60 year-old) female performers. The work’s vitality is enacted through high-sensorial experiences and presence drawn from a world of corporeality. With the wildly divergent body types and ages of the six women, there are multiple relational scripts at play.
SENSATION/DISORIENTATION does not dissuade or persuade any of these readings and is particularly interested in how audience projects narratives onto these bodies. Durational repetition and slow physical transformation play a vital role. Exhaustion ruptures familiar narratives while questions of labor and the individual, social, and cultural body are brought into the spotlight.
