glacier sister


glacier sister was an experimental duet between longtime collaborators Emie Hughes and Lydia Mokdessi. The work investigated modes of shared embodiment and spontaneous composition, and examined topics of spectatorship, agency, submission, kinship, and subtle leadership, while allowing for unplanned emergence of content. Hughes and Mokdessi shared a vocabulary of scores, dialogues, and rituals, and developed a practice of mutual decision-making as a method of training sensitivity to desire and mutual intuition. glacier sister modeled a radical form of deep togetherness.
