THIS is “a dance about dance without any dance”. The work choreographs text through the intersections of memory, narrative authority, truth, fiction, performance and memoir. Mining Truscott’s body of work to thieve and repurpose material, THIS investigates liminality and the experience and evaporation of time as parsed with memory and trauma. The work explores the “dancer” and the role of the female body, recognizing that our personal narratives live in our flesh and bone. THIS is a small or large or medium act of artistic survivalism and an inadequate attempt to reflect new context brought by the performance and climate at hand. THIS is a run-on sentence. THIS is a grift. THIS is a piece of cake.

THIS was supported by the Live Feed creative residency and commissioning program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. THIS received additional support from the National Performance Network. Additional residency for the development of THIS is provided by the Watershed Lab residency at Mount Tremper Arts
