dress rehearsal presents a muscular offering to tenderness. Composed of a series of vessels loosely and briefly holding water, the architectures are made of “soft, and slow, chosen, and stubborn, queer matters that require tending to.” The work serves as an allegory of living bodies and acknowledges communal being and existence.
