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."

SPIRITBODY

 
 
IMG-4363.jpg

performance art

Every mark, word, and thought is etched into our co-created reality. This lasting effect is represented by the permanence of the ink, as the single opportunity to make the mark reminds us of our impermanence. This moment has never been, and will never be again, yet is captured in the marks we use to tell our stories. This is the story of one queer artist responding to adversity by making marks of love and peace. Expanding and adapting their past installations (Instruments of the Present Moment at The Hammer Museum 2016, sit noho at The Penthouse 2015, and #sit at The Venice Boardwalk 2014) they are creating an island of calm and ease with this newest public offering.

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

IMG_6732.jpg

 

 

 

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.
