Dysmorphia in 4 Movements
Dysmorphia is a experimental exploration of fear, grief, addiction, and connection. Using words, sound,and movement, Signe is asking the questions that continue to come up for her. She wants to examine how these questions live in and on the body and how they interact with other bodies. Body dysmorphic disorder is a “mental disorder in which you can’t stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance — a flaw that, to others, is either minor or not observable.” Signe wants to open up about the fractures in her own reality. In the four movements she’s looking at the disruptions in her perceived realities and the friction that emerges from simultaneous and desperate truths. More questions than answers, Dysmorphia is in its development and Signe hopes to learn more about the work through sharing it with a Late Nite audience.
