(all the Joseph Beuys references in the world cannot heal the pain, confusion, regret, cruelty, betrayal or trauma...)
2009 Bessie Award winner
Crotch references the images and actions of artist Joseph Beuys. On the surface the work is about art, its histories and heroes. Deeper, a sadness grows, a queer melancholy. A song, a dance, a lecture, talking to the dead. Chaos through Play becomes Form.
Crotch was developed at Ponderosa (Stolzenhagen Germany) in 2007 and was commissioned/presented at L'Arsenic (Lausanne Switz) in 2008.
