Work, 2009

Thirteen two-hour dances were performed in partnership with Silke Otto-Knapp’s show Standing anywhere in the space in a relaxed position. Each individual performance is signified by a differing color accent on the costume. Instead of using video, each session was documented with a still camera that took photographs at 30-second intervals.  When viewed in a series, the viewer fills in the gaps between one moment of the dance and the next; the actual movement and passage of time are not experienced but are understood.
