Alexa Weir:
best friends forever
hey Death,
I’m sort of scared of you,
even though you’ve been with me my whole life.
sometimes you’re so quiet
i forget you’re there (sorry!)
you must know all my secrets
yet you’ve never told a soul.
that’s pretty cool.

The piece involves improvisation, interdisciplinary work with musicians and site specificity. Live music: David Strother in violin and the duo Mister Equis, guest artists from Mexicali, Mexico.

The hours which bind, separate and transform us, texture the body and layer our human experience. In a Breath, unravels the passing of time through memory and imagination of mother and child. It remembers those who came before and envisions those yet to come. Interpreters: Samantha Goodman, Chey Chankethya. Music: Tim Hecker.
