Dead Space


"Dead Space" features a dancer performing in a house that had been empty for 30 years. The movement and sound evoke the fractured timeline of the space. Echoes of actions and melodies are repeated in a search for resolution within the duplicity of memory. The mind struggles through the vague shadows of past possibilities, half-remembered ambient sensations, to piece together a linear truth. Inevitably this proves impossible, the past is as fluid and transitory as the future. The shadowy possibilities are repeated until they diverge into parallel paths, both possible and either one accurate. The mind has to acknowledge ignorance of what it has witnessed.
