In one instance a body is carried by two pairs of double-jointed legs that finish at the pelvis, sometimes it’s headless, and sometimes a mess of parts that have the hallmarks of a tragedy. On another occasion
a body rolls fantastically, in spite of arms that are trying to grasp everything that comes their way. Through the interweaving of a body, voice and language we obsess ourselves with the impossibility of pinning things down. We become playmates that seek bodies and materials that resist a singular categorisation and call out to the unfamiliar and multiple that cannot be adequately conveyed in words alone.
