Hanako Hoshimi-Caines


sent.d.iments involves performing life as objects, and being in/becoming family. This work comes out of being the mother of a young kid. For a babe, everything is not yet something and first comes through an embodied experience of the world. But the babe does not come into the world mastering signification, and messes things up: I am into the radicality and disobedience of my kid’s sensuousness. This performance aims to make minimalism meet story, protagonist, friend, feelings, mother, techno, particular proximity, laughter and home.
