TO DISAPPEAR AND SHAKE THE EARTH, ALL THE WHILE   (2021-ongoing) 

An experimental and speculative performance that picks apart scales of vulnerability and power that come with in(visibility). In this heightened state of performance and witnessing, perhaps the ultimate goal is to explode the body, to divert / skirt the gaze. What constitutes the persona - the details of the costume? the affect? the gesture? the voice? a demonstration of skill and athleticism? A hyper-visibility? Can we ever really know her?

 

How is the invisible embodied? How does it vibrate? What does its action feel like? An exercise in testing and harnessing the elasticity of opacities as a cataclysmic behavior.

This multi-channel video-performance involves a camera streaming through Zoom, a chest-strapped, GoPro streaming through Twitch, a green screen suit, and a sound composition featuring original text.

watch me 

watch closely,

don’t take your eyes off of me

I came a long way 

to find you 

watch me, now watch me 

watch me, closely 

be careful - you won’t want to miss this

watch as I 

t r e m b l e 

look at me, closely

I've come a long way 

watch,

and watch

and watch

made to be seen

yours, for the taking 

she brings herself to center stage 

someone, give us a witness

before, before she vanishes 

the glimmer that glosses over your iris 

and hits the back of your eye

el brillo de tus ojos

her only purpose is to burn as bright as the sun

and set ablaze the gaze reflected by her skin

she's come a long way -

 

is it possible, to disappear 

to disappear and still, see you?

is it possible to disappear and have you feel me?

is it possible to disappear and break the wind with my body?

is it, possible to disappear entirely, 

and shake the earth all the while
