Summer Shake Up at Triskelion Arts
Totem is a live performance based in symbolic representation. Formally, the completed Totem will resemble the aesthetic of an exquisite corpse. As an exquisite corpse involves images or words, collectively assembled in a sequence to create a surrealist collage, this work will accent and distinguish selections of the performers anatomy, defined as representations of the whole and reformed to a new anatomical amalgam. This corporeal interpretation will collectively assemble, mix, and match physicality and body segments to create a new “body” with a fragmented expression of parts and a unique physical story. The process of this assembly will be initiated when a 7x21 foot space created by light, shrinks over time, sliding and melding three bodies into one.
