This performance is a reimagining of a previous performance addressing intimacy in the aftermath of trauma. The costume worn by the performer becomes a second skin, interacting with and symbolizing the body and injuries inflicted on the body. As the performer moves through the process of healing, the viewer is taken on that path alongside them as they listen to the detailed description of what it was like to live during a time of coalescence. This video is indicative of the often harsh, unsettling reality of readjusting to life after rape.
