Living Room, 2020
livestreamed performance, 16:48 min.
Documentation of full performance: Vimeo

Living Room is a performance that considers the space of my living room as a two-dimensional grid on which a set of movements occur. The changing configurations of shaped silhouettes, which stand in for items of furniture and decor, are choreographed to represent distinct moments in time. A spoken text that ranges from matter-of-fact observations to autobiographical asides collapses poetry and list-making into a single stream of information.

This performance was conceived of for the nueBOX RE:volve series, “a laboratory performance experience that gives artists the opportunity to share their work in front of an intimate audience.” Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the work was ultimately reimagined as a livestream broadcasted from my kitchen table.
