2. Bad Choreography

Process Falling over | Lying face down | ‘Balancing acts’

You get to that point sometimes where you need to take things back to basics. Being able to work quickly. Spontaneously. These photographs are playful. How much ‘awkward and clumsy’ can I choreograph? Falling over, lying face down, ‘balancing acts’ (sic). No tricks here. No athleticism. The humour is dry. Pathos wriggles just under the skin.

“I think humour is used a lot of the time to keep people from getting too close. Humour side-steps and shifts the meaning.” — From Bruce Nauman
