incubus (2002)


Inspired by medieval belief in nocturnal spirits of the air who come to ravish sleeping victims, as well as those which were thought to cause the disease malaria through being inhaled, incubus is a duet exploring the landscape of the body from the waist upwards and it's negative spaces. Music for the work, featuring extended flute techniques and the sounds of mosquitoes,  is by Peter Kirn.
