Morbid Anatomy Museum, Brooklyn. May, 2016.

This durational performance with choreographer Jody Sperling and Time Lapse Dance, artist Suzanne Déry, and composer Omar Zubair conjured the technological transformative ghost-energy of Loie Fuller (1862-1928) -- modern dance pioneer, media innovator and creator of hypnotic spectacles. Hand-operated plasma light magic lanterns, bodies in movement, and mysterious luminous images produced a situation of happenstance for the audience, a gentle human element unfamiliar and riveting.
