A series of one minute videos taken by Timothy Rysdyke documenting the second piece Defiance of All. Defiance of All was the second piece in Saint Genet's Aesthetic Declarations entitled Transports of Delirium. This work of performance took place in an abandoned building that was once the home to the prestigious art gallery The Lawrimore Project.
Defiance of all featured former Pacific Northwest principal dancers Olivier Wevers and Chalnessa Eames, as well as choreography from Jessie Smith and James Kent. Over 15,000 stalks of wheat were installed in the gallery before being destroyed by the performance.
