Artist's Statement

We collaborate on performance artworks that focus on movement as a language of basic human interaction. These works serve as non-linear autobiographical documents. The collection & comparison of our shared & unshared personal experiences are translated & re-assessed through the use of multiple videos, chance improvisation, sound, & the choreography of the breakdown of time.

We’d like to share our epiphanies, moments of hopelessness, debauchery, victories, whirlwinds of energy, & secret exchanges through these intimate spectacles. The performances are a celebration & a reminder of everything that can happen all at once. We seek to bring humanness & the body to the public in its most shimmering form, whether it is through a triumphant sensory experience or a grotesque yet celebrated vision of reality.
