Created and performed by Artistic Co-Director Josh Martin, Brimming is a solo investigating the body as a container: a rigid frame holding in and concealing its stored inner contents. The piece imagines the body as a hollow interior space continuously shaped and reshaped, filled and emptied, and inhabited through different states. A performer trapped inside his own form, the dance is a meeting of both the seen and unseen – the invisible contents that slosh up against the sides, pushing against the outer surface from beneath, and occasionally leaking under its pressure. Brimming explores this shape we are in, how it holds us, and what may eventually spill out when the walls begin to bend.
This is a hybrid presentation utilizing live-feed cameras in tandem with a live in-situ performance. In-person audiences will attend an intimate and immersive experience, roaming freely to explore different perspectives and proximity to the work as it unfolds. Live camera capture of the performance is projected into the space as additional vantage points, which will be simultaneously broadcast for online streaming viewers.
