Stillness is a luxury right now – we’ve not had snow blankets here in NYC to help things along. Just bone-cold, a sense of weather holding out for the next drama, and a flurry of activity on my part.

Your Coat, Turning is a series of surrealist moving images and text prompts, alongside an audio score. It’s a sonic/visual environment that allows participants to explore body, ancestry, land, change and future, an invitation to re-imagine.
