Nine performers join K.J. Holmes in making themselves slowly invisible through the act of becoming visible. Engraving themselves in the walls, the hallways, the rooms through writing, sounding, and moving, they undergo a gradual backwards journey through time through a taking off of contemporary wearings to reveal history, or a de-evolution, arriving at a naked revelation (of sorts). Among their traces, the public can see layers of absent others who may have passed through those rooms. Nothing has to be proved.
K.J. Holmes is a dance artist, actor, singer and educator exploring improvisation as process and performance since 1981.K.J. is based in Brooklyn, and her work has been presented in New York City at Danspace Project, Dance Theatre Workshop, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Dance Works in Progress at The Kitchen, PS122, and other venues. Her most recent dance piece, This Is Where We Are (Or take arms against a sea of troubles), premiered at The Chocolate Factory Theater in Long Island City, March 2011. She is currently developing a piece as a 2012–14 Movement Research Artist in Residence. K.J. teaches at the NYU/Experimental Theatre Wing, the Eugene Lang/New School for Social Research and Movement Research in New York City, and travels nationally and internationally conducting workshops and performing.
