Defiance of All meticulously utilized the body as an instrument to reveal pivotal images. In a field of over 12,000 hand placed stalks of grass gently placed in the now identified sacred performance space, each stalk became a sacrificial lamb to the heightened forms of “The Ballet.” This brutal and terrifying form created a collective unconsciousness leading to the final image of Olivier Wevers quietly and gently shooting a loaded gun over the ballerina Chalness Eames and into the back of a patiently waiting Derrick Ryan Claude Mitchell.VIDEOMUSIC
