All Of It, Fall 2017
Over the past two years, 'All Of It' has been through many iterations. Currently, the work is a collaborative performance based in sound, sequential movement and task-based actions. Eight performers inhabit and exchange eight pre-established roles that happen simultaneously throughout the space for a duration of one hour. Having the choice of which roles to inhabit, and for how long before moving on to another, the performers create an autonomous and collaborative environment that continually changes and effects the outcome of the work.
The roles are derived from a series of personal experiences that, over time, have created within me a set of unspoken maps by which I live. In an effort to expose the absurdity of this influence I’ve abstracted the most influential maps into performative actions that exaggerate the futility of their foundation. A futility that when repeated and continually distributed among others depersonalizes and deflates their hidden influence, creating an objective look at the nature of these tacit dead ends.
