An Object, Screaming is a collaborative and experimental dance performance that originates in an ongoing reflection on the epistemic and spiritual nature of the creative act. By reflecting on the interplay between form, background and distortion, this work presents itself as a fragmented and porous field of information that in essence remains attached to contradiction. The object is the thing that gets constructed and approached diligently - but the object is fluid and alive -. The scream is the epiphanic poetic claim. The piece attempts to articulate aesthetic experiences of the ineffable and thus approximate complexity, contemplative presence and pristine affect. The work was presented in February 2020 at the Adele Shank Theater. This document stands as a layered recollection and reflection on the creative and collaborative process that took place through the making of this work. And as a culmination of my graduate studies at University of California San Diego.
