  4. This is a very first performance in a series of solo's called White Noise.

    I am working with ordinary movement, movement drawn from the activities of daily life. For the most part, "ordinary movement" is task oriented.

    In this piece I am improvising, and so my movement, I suppose, comes from my imagination, reflexes, muscle memories, and response to my immediate environment.

    Unlike in daily life, in this dance, rather than completing the initial intention, I play with following sensation, moving my attention, warping my perceptions. The original image is transformed, the intention is re-directed. It is a fascinating mind game, a kind of self imposed dyslexia.

    I am measuring the speed of the movement of my attention. The mind is very fast.

    The sound is a recording of my own breath.
