Consequence(s) is a work by choreographer and dancer Chloe Hart that has developed and transformed over the past two years, and which I joined in the spring of 2019.  An exploration of archive, trace, and memory in performance, the piece is danced amongst hundreds of loose sheets of paper.

In Chloe’s words: ” If performance is ‘disappearing’, as Peggy Phelan said, I have questions. What about the sweat left on the stage? What about the imprints of my hand on her skin? What about embodied knowledge, and all the things I thought I took with me when I left the theatre? Do all of these disappear?
