zephyr is a piece about journey and disintegration. The generating process included discussions about long, scenic train rides, memories revisited, and the decay of the body caused by illness.
This project was developed in conjunction with the Triple 9 festival, a new interdisciplinary arts festival that offers pay-what-you-can space to participating artists. The first iteration of zephyr, presented on May 20 + 21, was as a site-specific dance installation in a warehouse in Gowanus, Brooklyn. I then adapted zephyr for the stage on June 10th at WaxWorks, a movement-based artist showcase held at Triskelion Arts in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
