notes on the work
danse (3) is in part a response to ten years of making work in France, where the spectacle is king. danse (3) dispenses with most of the wrapping, but nonetheless, exploits the context of the spectacle to place the viewer in the corps of the dance.

danse (3) is also working in response to the economy of performance making and the real time it takes to land a work. It is unfinished, suspended in mid-cycle, being made by performing, part of a series of incomplete works where the raw materials are held in the foreground until they coalesce into form. It might resemble more a nest of crabs than a piece.
