Partly Stressed  performance, 2019
(for Pre-ramble, organised by Jude Browning at David Dale Gallery)

— a performance caught in a holding pattern and trying to improvise its way out of the room. Drawing loosely on some principles of 'tragedy' as circling towards event, counter circling in the fallout and punctuated by ritual song, improvisational chains, something about a grape harvest(?), and the wheeling out of an aftermath - this performance pits punctures in the present tense via oral gestures and ambiguous moves, suspended between vehicular languages of formal address and a rhythmic, romantic idiolect.
