Descent (10 Min), USA 2003

Descent is s short dance film inspired by the live perfromance of Descent performed by twelve female dancers around the architecture of a spiraling stairwell, where the audience was invited to view the performance looking down through the center well of the stairs and to descend the entire staircase to experience each of the multiple tableaus. Descent reflected on women as subjects and objects of desire within the domestic realm.
