2004, 1 hour interdiscipllinary performance
music, dance, film, and a 2100 pound wall of ice
Halifax, Canada, 2004
55:00 min. Live Performance
a wall of ice, a dancer, two musicians, and a film
Quiet Triptych, is an interdisciplinary performance in three parts, which explores the shifting of perceptions and belief systems. Fire, water, breath, and clay become elemental metaphors within a conceptual journey. Somewhere within the subconscious landscape, there must be a linking path between the spirit and the intellect.
The set includes a wall of ice, melting into a shallow pond flanked with fire. The performer shares the space with two musicians who both guide her on and distract her from this quest.
