duel C (2023)

Commissioned by LMCC's River-To-River Festival, Governors Island, June 18, 2023

Video (49 mins.)

duel C is a performance where care and violence commingle, stirring toward undoing. A dance of entanglement, duel C inhabits an illogic of sentience and perpetual movement, where agreement and disagreement, with and against, solidarity and solitary, harmony and dissonance are free to assume each other's properties.

duel C departs, literally and figuratively from Charles Gaines’ Moving Chains, a public art sculpture presented by Governors Island Arts, Creative Time, and Time Square Arts on Governors Island.
