With One Hand Between Us

November 2011
Performa, The New Visual Art Performance Biennial, NYC
40-hour performance for three actors and installation with three sculptures
hosted by Scaramouche, New York

"Unfolding for forty hours over five days, three actors improvise a sexually-charged, silent psychodrama; shifting relationships are articulated with glances, gestures, and movement. Framed by wooden partitions and paint-dripping geometric sculptures that stain the space over time, With One Hand Between Us disorients the gender and sexual conventions of both New York School painting and Minimalism, and playfully references a wide range of cinema, from Fassbinder to the Japanese New Wave." -- David Everitt Howe, Curator

Performed by David Rafael Botana, Laryssa Husiak, and Anthony Wills, Jr.
Make-up: Lucie Maurice. Photos: Heather Shelley. Video: Lisa Larson Walker. Project Assistants: Freja Mitchell and Jane Beaird. Special thanks to Nayef Homsi LLC and Scaramouche for project support.
