This work is based in the collaborative use of sound, sequential movement and task-based actions.

Performers inhabit and exchange six 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 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.
As a further degree of separation, the actions are de-personalized by way of their collaborative exchange. An exchange that creates an objective look at the nature of these tacit dead ends.
