Wandering (detail)

Images from a performance of Wandering (detail), a suite of 13 one-hour performances in the California Biennial, Orange County Museum of Art, 2010.  Each performance served as an exploration of the 13 women depicted in the original Mary Wigman photographs on which Wandering (still) was based.  Much like the film, where the bodies’ positions in space served as structure for the movement, each improvisation was an investigation of the physical attributes of each woman, inscribing a fictional narrative of her own individual movement habits in a tangible way.
