An elevator. A bus. A packed line. These are spaces where human proximity is close but not chosen. Juxtapose this with the selected intimacy of the domestic, and you have Home/Body. This work was in collaboration with Video Artist Dustin Zemel. Eight performers were placed in a home and asked to improvise while negotiating pre-designed rules, task-oriented movement, and more importantly, each other. The audience moved freely through the space as the performers played with the presence of crowdedness and forced intimacy.
