In DEAD TIME (Maggie’s Solo) (2021) a dancer shifts across a spectrum of heightened activity and waiting. The work is an anatomy study for the 21st-century, a moment in time when the human body becomes imaged, both vital and corpse-like. During DEAD TIME (Maggie’s Solo) (2021), a dancer holds static stances modeled on Instagram selfies and 17th Century still life painting. In order to render her body compressed and entirely still, while she poses, she stops breathing for approximately 45 seconds. My edition is a drawing made from one of her dead-static poses, capturing the moment when respiration is stopped. Partly documentation and mostly a movement score, the sketched figures I draw are a way to chart my dance collaborations and working processes. These stage and examine technical temporal performance climates in which it is increasingly difficult to differentiate between what is alive and what is dead.
