'2x in a Living Room and a Kitchen’ is a site-specific, adapted work that is part dance, part sound, part performance art.
The piece explores the obscurity of functional living space and its accompanying problems of communication. Designed for performance in a ‘tiny’ space, the piece offers the deliberate use of obscure notions of body, with frequent changes in perspective and subject/object roles, in the setting of a normal living space (conceived of as a living room and a kitchen). Through the utilization of a restricted space, movement, visual media, and sound are amplified and condensed to intensify the relationships between the moving and static elements of the work. Sound is used to underscore the drama enacted by the participant dancers. There are many visual props used in the piece.
