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 A 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.
