stills > Meniscus performance poster

Meniscus addresses the human struggle between our longing for transcendence and our physical immersion in the world. Developed in response to the architecture of Epiphany Episcopal Church, the piece negotiates tensions between the restricted but verifiable horizontal plane, and the soaring but insubstantial promise of altitude. Movement in the piece spans extremes of weightlessness and density, touching on themes of buoyancy, single-celled animals, science fiction, disappearance, ventriloquism and prayer.
