ab: from/to (2009)
a collaboration with choreographer Jürg Koch
Pushing forward, pulling back— the variables in life create fluctuations. A flutter in the belly, connection through a glance, the brush of a hand. Attention can waver at any moment. Fluctuating identity, to and from. But from what, and where to? One can never be completely sure where identities are concerned. Identities are not fixed, immobile. Identities are not a constant. Life is full of variables, and desire is not always a linear path.
