Abstract:

"We're born is a sac -- and we leave in bag." Gavin Krastin South African choreographer Gavin Krastin's performance explores the limits and boundaries of movement while trapped in a transparent sheath. A solitary, vulnerable performer confronts the body's desire to break free, while only breath escapes. His physical struggle to move is a portrait of resistance to stasis, stagnation, loss and futility. Krastin describes himself as "a gay, white, South African of a certain privilege and class in relation to other bodies." He suggests that the work deals with race and is intended to "expose and speak to the larger politics that affect us all." More than 20 years after Mandela became president, South Africa - like so much of the world - is still constrained and divided by race, gender and class. The struggle for freedom is ongoing.
