Brimming investigates the body as a container: a rigid frame holding in and concealing its stored inner contents. The piece imagines this hollow interior space, filled and emptied, and inhabited by different states. A performer trapped inside of their own body, the dance is a meeting of both the seen and unseen – the hidden contents that slosh up against the sides, pushing against the outer surface from beneath, and occasionally leaking under this pressure. Brimming explores this shape we are in, how it holds us, and what might eventually spill out when the walls begin to bend.
