slow dance recyttal

A video performance produced in collaboration with Cassandra C Jones and Christopher Doulgeris. The full performance premiered in 2006 at PICA's TBA Festival in Portland, OR combining cinematic projection with costumes, inflatable crystal set pieces, and live music. The narrative follows a well-dressed forest creature who collects butterflies around his home. The pleasure of this task intoxicates him, manifesting in a disorienting dream of himself as a greedy, tentacled abstraction. Technically, this piece combined hand drawn animation with found photo collage and hand painted backdrops.
