Lines in the body, between people and things—as pathway, intersection, collision, mark and cut—help me to understand what is happening and what might happen. These lines are not abstract or geometric; rather, they are common forms of human communication.
I am a dancer and choreographer who works across performance, opera, drawing, and writing. Since the 1990s I have been tracing various manifestations of line in performance and visual art asking us to think about form in terms of transition.
This page brings together process-oriented materials in various forms as a way to think analytically, anatomically, rhythmically and fantastically about my drawing and performance practice. Descriptions and interview fragments were developed by Cori Olinghouse to create further conversation and interpretation around the works.
