I Replaced Him With a Lamp

"Revlock stripped away every non-essential element, relying on simple body language and facial expressions to convey complex emotions." - The Dance Enthusiast

 

The movement for this solo is extracted from an accidental video recording of myself receiving verbal feedback from an older, established, European male artist. Underlining the repeated movement motifs with a repetitive sound score, my subconscious movements become both a structure and a portrait of gender and status.
