RITUAL No. 2: SHE SPEAKS HER COUNT was a sensually meditative loop where concept becomes content. A study in language, value, and purpose. A systematic performance that presented a loving yet hellish relationship between two doomed creatures trapped in a cannibalistic existence.

Two figures (ODD and EVEN) took their places opposite one another in a classic kissing chair. This pair of female performers was draped, head to toe, in flowing red fabric with only their mouths and a single ear each exposed. EVEN faced forward to speak a number’s name, ODD turned to whisper the same digit’s count in her partner’s ear. For two hours they rotated tasks, from speaker to counter. During these two hours, “One” was spoken once, “two” was spoken twice, “three” was spoken three times, so on and so forth.
