Performance about a woman (2013-18) was an iterative project that began with the question, is it possible to extract and perform the mythologies that have embedded themselves in my psyche? Over the course of five years an embodied practice and performance evolved. Inspired by Yvonne Rainer’s Film About A Woman Who..., this project became an experiment in projection and the relationship between a performer and a spectator.
