Ministry. is a solo exploring the destruction of the fantasies we wrap ourselves with – the super hero, the romantic, the villain. The performance touches on creation, loss and sanctity of the human body. Devolving throughout the piece, the performer ricochets between control, violence and intimacy, letting go of these fantasies, until all that is left is the power of the body; the home.

The work has been performed at Derida Dance Center in Sofia, Gdansk Dance Festival Poland, ArtsWells Festival BC Canada, Create:ART Series NYC, and CraftNY Series.
