to get under, you have to lose

created & performed by Laura Ann Samuelson

premiered January  2020 at The Atlas Institute's B2 Center for Media Arts and Performance, University of Colorado - Boulder

Using plywood, steel, dance and text, a performer digs holes in the gap between the laws of physics and the mechanics of a psyche. The holes keep collapsing and turbulence shows up as a series of squares. How a body tolerates emptiness becomes a question; to get under, you have to lose destabilizes the floor in order to imagine new futures.
