We conceive of our creative work as existing within cycles. Each cycle is centered around certain materials and processes that are speaking to us individually and together. We revisit these materials in order to examine them from different angles, to see what else might be illuminated. 

 

Many performances are site specific and rooted in our engagement in DIY artist communities. Our work is often performed at events in bars, yards, and houses as well as in traditional concert dance spaces. These events, many of which we curate ourselves, bring together visual artists, musicians, performers, and artists from a wide variety of media to create community events that spark cross-disciplinary dialogue. This curatorial practice has been central to the collective since our founding in 2015. We are interested in how a friendship can also feed creative research and how to sustainably make and present work outside of a major city and within DIY artist communities.
