Lateral means to a dramatic end, the original task-based performances, Privattheater, Whwymgb, Pecu, and Opæan, formed a surprisingly coherent solo project to provide material and direction for my consequent collaborations. Notably, I would lead the company Psychological Art Circus to make a distinct body of interdisciplinary work guided by the texts of three seers, Anna O., Olive Pixley, and, in Illusions of Reference, the Oracle, Pythia.
Following Illusions, I began to devise a new conceptual framework for creation based on an idiosyncratic reading of the life and art of Ramon Llull. The results of this research - visual, sonic, and programmatic - are elaborated on in live work The Coincidence of All.
