LATE NIGHT FUTURE (2002) 22 minutes
Late Night, a span of time that expands, consuming the past and projecting into the future, making it difficult to grasp what is real. Here we enter the world of late night future.
The piece does not tell a specific story. The gestures removed from their original intent are left bare. It asks for a different reading. It becomes about the physical act, the rhythm, the sensation.
