Carrion / 8 Min excerpt (full length 45mins) 

Through gleaning bones, a figure of contradictory and constantly shifting pluralities emerges. This figure constructs languid reflections of the natural through a detritus of celluloid reproduction. Cursed by ghosts of romanticism and nostalgia, Carrion is in the throes of forced evolutionary acceleration. Can they uncover secrets to their survival? Scattered with clues to this speculative future, the performance space becomes an archaeological site for a cybernetic demigod struggling with the symbiosis of its distinctly unique character. Never quite human, only ever Frankenstein: a ghost of the west, a virus, a trickster, or a prehistoric bird.
