How do we know the “other” within? In this physically dynamic piece, two inextricably intertwined bodies navigate form and variation in their shared skin.
Des-Echoes is an exploration of our relation to the parts that we hide, disassociate from, or ignore. Two bodies are torn apart, conjoined, dismembered, and gathered again in a dance of generative friction.
[Des-Echoes] is a complication of the Spanish, “desechos”, meaning “rubbish”, “waste”, “outcast”.
Des-Echoes is part of a double bill with Fadeout.
