Post Memoriam




PERFORMANCE


This multimedia dance perforamance is a BFA Distinction Thesis. The work explores a humanist narrative arc of World War II and adjacent crimes against humanity along with their contemporary implications through dance, video and photography.
Dance as a corporeal medium forces an audience to look into the eyes of another human being and confront their own complicity.

“In effect, after 1945 poetry is an act of defiance. A quixiotic refusal to descend into silence.” - Jay Winter 



“Erbschuld” - Collective National Guilt
