Clingstone is a performance work focusing on the intersection of bodies and color. Clingstone creates a landscape in which colors assert themselves in dynamic, unexpected, and revelatory ways—like a bright patch of moss subtly emerging from a crack in pavement, or a volcano violently expelling glowing liquid. It imagines the emotional state that arises when a new color moves from the inside out and imposes itself onto the world around it.
Clingstone is a work-in-progress that developed at Center of Performance Research, Febuary 2017
