self/work

(2018)


SELF/WORK is a performance that entertains notions of labor, power, and authority in matters of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Set in a dystopian retreat center, it is engaged with doctor and charlatan, placebo and medicine, and phenomena of healing that are better explained by metaphysics than by hard science.


The sound world of the piece is deployed using an interactive performing system built from analog circuitry, Max/MSP and a sprawling interface design that asks performers to complete the sound-producing circuit using the electrically conductive properties of the body.
