Our bodies like dams
Our bodies like dams is a live multimedia performance set in a handmade, flooding city. This part love-story, part eco-fantasy, imagines a woman’s unexpected metamorphosis in the face of romantic and coastal decay, as her and her partner’s apartment floods entirely. Adapted from their short film of the same name, the project is realized as a live performance with puppetry, miniature sets, wearable sculpture, three live-feed cameras, dance and live, immersive sound. This project was first developed and supported as part of Mabou Mines Resident Artist Program, with mentors Mallory Catlett and Becca Blackwell.
