he his own mythical beast (working title) is a multimedia performance work comprising three separate components: Part I – The Voyeurs, Part II – The Session, and Part III – Venus. Together they create an integrated meditation on race, gender, and sexual identity (boundaries) in American society through the lens of voyeurism. Underlying these investigations is an interrogation of the concepts of freedom and surrender, questioning how we perceive their meaning and value as states of power. Each section is being developed as a unique immersive installation that will have a weeklong performance presence.
