The series Refrain creates a cyclical choreography through the writing of a repeated phrase. A precisely crafted movement incantation, these danced refrains produce visual documents that, like their performance, expand the original phrases through imperfect repetition. The refrains are phrase excerpted from John Cage’s 1959 Lecture on Nothing and 1951 Lecture on Something.
