This work is a practice in embodiment and disembodiment; grounding and ungrounding a sense of “self” in the space. This work is a practice in getting what you want and leaving when it feels bad. It’s about the porousness of the human capsule and laying to rest the sexually shameful self. It’s about living in a trans, celibate, healing body. It’s about “look but don’t touch.” It's about dirty talking your way through life and becoming whoever you want me to be in front of you. It’s about blurring, evaporating, becoming vaporous. It's about two solos that are a duet. It’s about boundaries. It’s about becoming whoever you want us to be.
