solo performance with an accordion and live electronics
length : 10 minutes
A ritual dance to fix the web of time where it was broken. A descendant of restless blood in permanent exile, I bear the weight of my ancestors. Strapped on my shoulders, it limits my movement, which finds an echo in the music. My breath follows the rhythm of memory: the accordion ebbs and flows, the bolero torn between masculine and feminine. Prior to rebirth, I shake off patterns. I untie myself from these prop-identities and renew with emptiness. Like a good bonfire I leave no trace. Digging new roots in impermanence, anywhere out of the world.
