About the performance

A work made in a moment when all that was there was this body, its dreams and nightmares and cycles and needs, sensations and wanting. I went mining. I haunt this work. I is a collection of already historical circumstances, remembered and un-remembered. I is a crowd. I is a trick of the light.

SERAFINE1369

I I I (something flat, something cosmic, something endless) creates a communal space where you can pursue dreams and memories and their infinite dimensions or remain in a private sphere. The lights, sounds and haze extend outward from the stage to become part of the viewer’s experience – the way the space is constructed invites the viewer to become aware of their corporeality and the tensions and energies that shape the dynamics of space. 

SERAFINE1369

The body in SERAFINE1369’s practice is physical, communal and responsive to its environment; as a way of being, dance is both intimate and political. SERAFINE1369’s performances are about presence just as much as they are about absence. Through their experiential practice that manifests as writing, facilitation and performance, they explore the ways in which the mechanisms of oppression make identities or entire groups invisible and influence how bodies reproduce dominant and normative conventions.
