texts from the object

Not a Doormat

extremely serious, functional
stunned by random discovery made while examining you: accident interview:
by anything life has to throw

the intent behind this is not to raise money; it is to change behavior

obligations encourage use, not honoring service


I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.

Doomed Love. Death. A Femme Fatale. Eleven Missing Days uses the stylized, low-budget world of film noir as a starting point in this contemporary dissection and chronicle of the theme of disappearance, up-ending the creative process itself.

Collaborators on the hybrid dance/theater/audio project include performers Jeremy Hahn, Rachel Lopez, Nancy Sandercock, and Rae Shao- Lan Blum; writer Mikki del Monico; and composer/sound artist Aaron Drake; with lighting design by JaNelle Weatherford.

The development of Eleven Missing Days is supported in part by an Artists' Resource for Completion grant from The Durfee Foundation; and by the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures Hothouse Residency (2007).
