Choreographed by Laurel Butler
Performed by Laurel Butler, Anna Greenberg, Julie Potter and Maria Walsh at Counterpulse's Second Sundays, 2011
from the Second Sundays program:
"Hot Mess concerns itself with a particular feedback loop of cognitive dissonance and emotional activity. How does a female body preserve interiority when our neuroses are on display? Together - and separately - the performers investigate a range of exercises in futility, including: everyday mechanisms of composure, irrepressible distractions, attempts to disconnect head from body, and the occasional compulsion to become a lampshade."
