Performance

"We find the process of creating art to be a spiritual and life-affirming experience. We invite all who are present to co-create our transient moment of existence... Death is only a breath away; we can laugh, scream, or sing our way into the embrace."

transdisciplinary queer theatrical film performance experiment

"Plastic, plastic everywhere, in our blood it lives, climate changes, species die, a slow end it gives." This opening nursery rhyme of the transdisciplinary queer theater aspect of Layers is a microcosm and artistic metaphor of the more significant themes at play in this piece that dances between and beyond traditional art forms surrounding video art and performance. By our mere existence and sustaining ourselves, we create massive amounts of waste; what is there to do about it but make art? The first step to solving any problem is to notice that we have a problem in the first place. Stop. And find a new way to approach it. Change the way we look at it, and the thing we look at begins to change.

The piece continues to develop, ever changing, perhaps never ending, until I’m dead, or done with it anyway. For now, it has manifested as the Prologue of Marks in Fall of 2022, Act I: Adult StoryTime Spring 2023, and Act II: plunder the sea Fall 2023… more to (be)come…

performance art

SPIRITBODY (2015-ongoing) is an investigation of embodying a dynamic Queer presence during site-responsive durational installation performances. Previous iterations of the work were performed notably at The Hammer Museum during the IRL Studio in 2016, The Electric Lodge’s High Voltage Series in 2018, Beach Dances at The Annenberg Community Beach House in 2018, and at The Gallery at J&S Arts in 2022.

Currently, SPIRITBODY is a movement dialogue with time and place. Throughout the performance, the artist attends to the process of maintaining mindful embodied awareness while dancing improvisationally in slow time and inhabiting moments of stillness. Surrounded by plants the body (re)connects with a queer sense of time unbound by the bombarding speed of the digital age.

You Speak to Me in Dreams

You speak to me in dreams

I sense your presence, and invite you in

At times more subtle than not

I dream deeply; causing my body to shutter and twitch

You speak to me in dreams

Eyes wide staring anxiously desiring to know the depths of my misfortune

I feel you waver, and pull you near

You asked for this, you wanted this; yet fear drives the ship down the same narrow canal

You speak to me in dreams

I await, knowingly, in peaceful solemnity

Yet, I see you, always around the corner

I dive deep into the unknown, and grab the string of your robe

This veil sharp pulls me; capturing my attention

I slide along the wall as I chase the taciturn jubilation

This passage is blurred, and unending it seems

The picture frames slip… and recycle themselves into the surrounding darkness

I am pulled

Bound

Entranced by magic

This anthology of stories, detached from our own…

You speak to me in dreams

-Jeremy Hahn

The In-Between

 

 

 

a participatory ritual based offering in the Arroyo Seco

 

Listen to the wind;

it tumbles still…

Water fills my head,

peeling back layers;

and, opening your eyes… 

 

An offering made with the intention of dissolving loneliness

and honoring the ground we stand upon.

The stories of the people past and present

emerged through poetry, voice, history, and movement by an ensemble of artists. 

The In-Between ensemble consisted of:

1 historian, 1 percussionist, 2 actors, 4 vocalists, 8 dancers

Choices

Embodying the wisdom of illusory experience, 

past present and future, 

we surrender effortlessly into our

miraculously unique 

multifaceted piece 

of the multiverse.

guided meditation and visual experience

Can meditation be taught?

Words can be followed, like poetry, they can only point the way. 

Meditation is experienced, as the path is experienced. 

This film is an invitation to go on a journey.

A journey through breath, thoughts, and prose. 

Combining dance, words, and music, we express; This.

multifaceted performance art

SPIRITBODY - (noun) a living and queer unicorn in a constant state of becoming 

SPIRITBODY was first commissioned as a solo performance for stage exploring the endeavors of a mythological unicorn in 2015. Since the premiere, the nonlinear saga continues in dreams and rides the sonic edges of crystalline bowls. SPIRITBODY loves to travel and has teleported as a durational installation to museums, galleries, theaters, and nontraditional spaces throughout Los Angeles. SPIRITBODY enjoys the interplay between poetry, crystal singing bowls, improvisational dance, and video art that invites the viewer to surrender into the impermanence of this unfolding dreamscape.

Instruments of the present moment

a participatory durational installation

Performed at The Hammer Museum, in Venice Beach, and North Hollywood.

Pulling from the skills we have cultivated, we become open to the Instruments of the Present Moment. through ritual, ceremony, chanting, singing, movement, dance, breath, yoga, presence, healing, and all we have acquired in our decades of practice, we will be doing our best to allow the present moment to sing through the instruments of our bodies, minds, and hearts. come and join, and become a part of the music. by your very presence, the present shall change; and so too, will we change.

Five Words

Only Speaking Prayers. 

 

Five words.


 

Each day,

 

More with less.
