Portraits is a series of duets created for the Woodmere Art Museum performed in conjunction with the exhibit A More Perfect Union? Sex, Power, and Race in the Representation of Couples. Inspired by select works in the exhibit, Portraits integrates the architecture of the space and the body to activate the images. The performance creates a textured layering of couples' multiple viewpoints and speaks to the complexities, passion, tension, vulnerabilities and strength of human connections. This work gives audience members an intimate look at couples while breaking expectations of race, gender and orientation using movement, sound and text.
