the sky cocoon
The Sky Cocoon is a performance art piece performed on 28/4/14 at McCormack Theatre, Providence, RI. It is meant to be viewed while an accompanying audio track plays and alongside a companion Instagram site. The audience is invited to participate.
The piece was designed to explore relationships between emotional burden as both stabilizing and transformative forces; what happens when we, what it means to hold a memory or release it. In a ceremony both tactile and silent (save for audio narration track), the audience is invited to tie knots on and around the performer using their own choice of material.
