Distorting the state of the frame, the stage unhinges itself from its physical foundations. Here now, roles between actor and spectator shift and merge. Intersections between physical and felt bodies emanate within the scene. A simultaneity of what lies within and beyond these constructions invigorates a sensibility between felt sentiments and physical absences. Performing for itself, and pursuing itself, a confused seam emerges amongst the bodies of the corporeal stage. Clothing and unclothing present and absent bodies, the veil of the seam is caught between the desire to simultaneously reveal and camouflage. In this stage, spaces and figures are caught between dimensions of time, and shifting depths. Figures in the scene haunt the spaces between here and there, and linger neither here nor there.
