is here | she
A portion of each ticket sale will go to helping the Refugee Crisis
Missing You presents is here | she, a performance based on the affects and positioning of being perceived. It's a trio of female figures who have faces. Hope, Katherine and Lady are their names. They configure a legacy that refuses the cooperation that diminishes them, and suggests an inter-involvement in the complex relationships of power and control. The figures say, 'No' with their bodies and tongues as their environment calculates tearing them apart. The bystander watches them through the TV avoiding the realization that it could be real life.
