Through collaboration with professional dancer and choreographer, Rachel Burn, we explored a lexicon taken from a specific text over the course of a year. I am interested in boundaries of interpretation, concepts relating to linguistic vulnerability and the representation of reality or thought through language. Rachel uses pedestrian-like movement and abrasive body language to represent specific words derived from a short story by J.A. Taylor.
