FOREIGN BODY      Installation performance at La Mama Courthouse 2011

"Could have happened 50 M B.C.

My stay in the Australian Desert (although short) was the most profound experience.

I felt exposed, naked, humble,  Felt like a speck.  Felt like the first human on the land.

Foreign Body was a conceptual performance, sounds and artworks, based on my experience in the Australian Desert. The music was about the sounds and dynamic I wanted to hear. Ren Walters (my life partner) and I designed  a visual and structural score.
