These intimate and complex works reveal and explore the frailties and conditions of the corporeal. Individual history and unexpected events imprint the body, gesture and activity make visible the realities of the physical, and imagined bodies provide a rich field for social critique and play. Here, experience and the passage of time are written on the skin, and desire, contradiction, repulsion, pleasure, incoherence, and irony all reside. Program length 87 minutes.
