This physically vulnerable choreography frames the male body between violence and pleasure — generating a sonic score of tonal feedback, swooshing, and clunking hits, microphones are bound to the body and swung in polyrhythmic patterns evoking forms in the realm of BDSM, pornography, athletics, Malambo, martial arts, and flagellation. Through genital hypnosis and rigorous discomfort, this is a dance of (narcissistic) pleasure and (quiet) longing, (self) mutilation and (self) care. A dance to flatten and complexify the male body, to tenderize the flesh, to exorcise the socialized, to move beyond and newly inhabit — a phallic solo to recompose the phallus.
