TRS is a 30 minute installation / performance piece that explores and expresses the fundamental tenets of Plato’s Symposium on The Origins of Love. In brief - that we originated before “we” but as “one” and were torn apart by the Gods. The arc of this work follows the process of unity, duality, awareness, animation, consciousness, connection - and then finally trying to smash ourselves back together.
Manifested through an expressive sound score, dance and video design.
