A Trilogy on Absenting presents simple live performances exploring absenting, withdrawals, and disengagements. In Iceboat I row a boat of ice until it melts and releases me into the waters.Minds to Lose(live performance titled Petting Zoo) weighs the categories of human and animal, all of whom enjoy a temporary respite from human interference because of their loss of consciousness. Leaf Fall shows the denuding of a tree over the course of a single day, leaving behind an autumnal sprig, made special through the day’s relentless process of subtraction.
