Work, 13 2-hour performances, 2009

Work, 2009, Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, Canada

13 sessions of dance for 2 hours apiece over 2 weeks. Each session is represented by a different colored accent on the costume. Since the length of the performance was 26 hours, time-lapse photography was utilized instead of video documentation. On day 2, the “work” was icing a knee and working on a laptop, a much needed day of rest after running away from a Grizzly Bear during a Canadian hike.
