doorways and other limits

Tobie’s solo in the doorway between her living room and dining room.

If you asked me for the most concise summation of all of my interests, I would say: complicated, unruly bodies colliding with systems. What happens when the dynamic, unknowable complexity of a person meets a system?

We are always looking for limits, rules, and structures that focus action. Tobie’s piece is a solo, so we looked even harder for systems for her to interact with, push against. Recordings of her own voice. Strict, mathematical moving and speaking patterns. And the doorway.
