exercises with fire ii  (2021)

Exercises with Fire II presents an embodied negotiation of grief. A dancer's body moves between round, fluid gestures to compact, compulsions atop a low, undulating score. Part of an ongoing collaboration with artist Mie Beers, this work draws upon the formal techniques of dance and video editing in an attempt to respond to the question, "how can a person move their body through its grief?"
Curatorial note by Sam Soh for VODmilk

Here, for now presents five evocations of movement and home. From roots to routes, these works navigate an embodied, mobile geography through memory, migration, environment, dance and survival.
