Item #2

  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Two women enter the space. Their way of moving suggests that we see is the result of a conversation that began long ago. We see them hovering and embrace absent bodies, it is not clear if these bodies are of ancestors or something of the present. The two women move giving a sense of unity, they contaminate each other. They share bones blood and bodies. They play a game of life and death, they imitate and are opposed, push, hold and manipulate. We yet do not know where this game is going to lead them.
