The recurrent rise and fall of the human body becomes removed from the reality of anatomy and science. This cyclic rhythm is instead approached as an undulating sound- and landscape exploiting breath as a persistent and variable force. Simone Jones’ film of her Perfect Vehicle (2003-2007) navigating the epic and beautifully spare Salt Flats inspired me to imagine an anonymous and surreal _scape existing on seven performers’ breaths.
