unnatural history is a dance/theatre experiment calling into question the notion of live theater in the age of social media. It is performed live, however, only two performers are “onstage.” The other three performers are projected from their bedrooms, the new stage of the 21st century. Exploring the seismic shift in how we transmit meaning, the piece is structured in two parts, part one live via the web, part two, entirely in the flesh. 

Part one explores the anti-linear and anti-narrative quality of the internet. The image is supreme and singular moments occur without meaning stretched between them. Part two centers on embodied physical intelligence at a deep physiological level. Information is transmitted as energetic states, in search of unquantifiable, unconsumable, and anti-patriarchal communication.
