Three lit jars suspended from the studio ceiling.


Goldfish circle within. Below. Dimly lit. Four women lie. On their backs. Heads toward the audience.


Like fish. Slithering and sliding. Raising their pelvises. Pushing upwards. Exploring their bodies. Their heaviness. Their isolation. Lightness of being.


Soundscape of bubbling water. Oceanic depths. Watery environment beoming one with their bodies. Suspended.


Pushing upward. Breaking through. Surfacing.


Sound of footsteps. Metallic sound of gate unlatched.


Gravity. Under. A cycle repeated. Descending.


A metaphoric work of women navigating aimlessly in circles. Like goldfish in jars above. One woman stares at a jar. Seeing herself.


A fascinating mesmerizing work.
