What does it mean to disappear? In Pursuit is a work which explores the themes of death, memory, disappearance, and hope through a collage of juxtapositions. Through this fragmented approach I hope to piece together for myself the experience of losing my father. Although the jarring images and disruptive use of many media may initially seem to yield no cohesion, unification comes from the use of these diverse media.
In Pursuit is a powerful combination of dance, theater, props, photo projections, video, and also a theoretical exploration of existence. Jean Cocteaus once said, “if you want to see death, just keep looking in the mirror.” I will be working with dancer, Lauren Ohmer, acting and voice coach, Daniel Pettrow (Wooster Group), and music landscape designer Todd Carroll (School of Visual Arts).
