Dance, Visual, Experimental Sound


“The unity of the craftsman’s mind and body can be found in the expressive language that guides physical action. Physical acts of repetition and practice enable this animal laborans to develop skill from within and to reconfigure the material world through a slow process of metamorphosis.”  (Richard Sennet, The Craftsman, 2008)

This performance examines labor processes within a society subjugated through steel and programmed chips and constructs a ritual entity through a series of imaginative reflections. It further questions the sovereignty of a revolving societal dystopia,of corporeal labor in the realm of increasingly industrialized by automated modus operandi.

This project is dedicated to the late Prof. F-Nii Yartey
