Counterpoint A, 2018

Performance / Duration: 30 minutes

A pre-recorded male voice recounts a seemingly significant occurrence. Three male performers enact the script, keeping in line with the voiceover’s direction. There are three protagonists - the man, the other man and the third man. What seems to have happened between them is never fully revealed. The gestural vocabulary evokes a range of possible narrative lines – rivalry, an erotic encounter, confrontation, violence, cooperation – none of which ever crystalize. The moment an image begins to stabilize, it dissolves, erases itself and transform into another.

Counterpoint revolves around notions of opposing forces, conflicting ideas, and the transformations that need to take place in order for contrasting perspectives to maintain a sense of direction.
