Four Walls, Two Selves
Video, Projection and Choreography
“Four Walls, Two Selves” was an improvisational performance at Alvin Ailey in February of 2020. It examines the lack of physical space I inhabited in my New York apartment and how that impacted my propensity to work. The limitations of space and time along with the never-ending demands that the city placed on my attention created this piece. I worked in dance, video, collage, and text to meld ideas together, and created many possibilities for experience based on attention. By overwhelming the viewer with many stimuli across the senses, I aim to provoke a conscious and intentional direction for a viewer’s attention.
