World Premiere

Brimming is a new solo work-in-development investigating the body as a container: a rigid frame holding in and concealing its stored inner contents. The piece imagines this hollow interior space, filled and emptied out, and inhabited by different states. A performer trapped inside of their own body, the dance is a meeting of both the seen and unseen – the invisible contents that slosh up against the sides, pushing against the outer surface from beneath, and occasionally leaking under its pressure. Brimming explores this shape we are in, how it holds us, and what might eventually spill out of one’s self when the walls begin to bend.
