Created and performed by Yara Travieso
Your Heart & Your Belly & Your Whole Insides Felt Empty & Wanting & Hollow (Episode 1.) is the first installment of a performance trilogy depicting a dance-for-two between woman and void.
Episode 1. depicts a physical and intimate relationship between a woman and a billowing 35ft military parachute. The 45 mph winds function as the point of tension between the two, and give the woman up to 200lbs to dance with. This paradoxical love story explores futility v.s. potential of transcendent intimacy with nothing. (Episode 2. vimeo.com/152193777)
