Three performers tell each other about a movie they saw, talking and dancing and calling each other on the phone. They film themselves and each other. Most of this is on their own terms.
This movie is also about three characters: the protagonist, the writer, and the voice actor (who eventually becomes the dancer). It’s a psychological thriller about miscommunication and desire. It’s about training eyes.
Like a rumor or a contagion, the movie plot mutates through each embodied iteration.
This project is currently a work-in-progress and will be completed in July 2022.
Performers: Jacqueline Van de Geer, Nien-Tzu Weng, Sarah Poirier-Chouinard
Camera: Isabelle Pauwels + performers
Sound: Elena Stoodley
The Plot is made possible by the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the CCOV, and PRIM.
Alternative title: You Hug a Ghost Consensually
A series of attempts to make a conceptual dance horror film and Who Shot Roger Rabbit rip off.
You record an image to memory by closing your eyes slowly explores the notion of the protagonist as a host of power and seeks to utilize and shift that paradigm.

Possible performance is a script of gestures written in the second person: You try to jump but you try also not to jump. These gestures explore different forms of impossibility or considers impossibility as an embodied philosophy.
I invite others (friends, people I like, people I trust, people who like me, people who trust me) to do the script. They work together to figure out what that means -how to be, how to do. There is no audience. I film them. I work with their image.
possible performance has been presented in different shapes and forms:
