Independent New Choreographers

A dance with spoken word and body percussion created for a season of independent new works at PICA in 1994, History and the Seraph was a feminist work for solo performer. The male voice and gaze were interrogated bodily and verbally. Text was adapted from Deborah Levy’s An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell, 1990 – satirical conversation between an angel who descends into a bleak British suburb and the accountant she briefly cohabitates with.
