A search for a sense of identity and belonging
Other Half OrbitSouthern Exposure (3030 20th Street, San Francisco, CA) Map it Free
In 2007, Rojas Contreras briefly lost her memory in an accident, an event that inspires questions about self, identity and personal history in this performance. For Other Half Orbit, the two performers lay half-submerged in a wide pool of water, the images of their bodies completed by their reflections, speaking of half-remembered moments, dreams and memory loss; the sound of their voices passes through both water and air.
This performance is part of the exhibition White Hot Lamp Black, on view February 7 – March 8, 2014 at Southern Exposure.
