Contrary to the notion that the body mirrors an internal self, these works reflect the body as inscribed largely by culture, by the external constructions and conditions one inhabits and encounters--ethnic conflict, suburbia, old movies, disease, age. The program provides unflinching witness to the often poignant, occasionally humorous or absurd conflicts that are acted out on, and by, the feeling, physicalized body. Program length 89 minutes.
