INDEX is a processional series of live events performed by two dancers with painted bodies who act as live “sculptures” in space. While delineating its own complicated space between performance and exhibition, the temporary and the durational, the content of INDEX is culled from a range of Mast’s other performances. They are “citations” of past works, and construct an inexact and unfinished index of her choreographies. INDEX forms a glossary of signals, a modular set of tools and a new alphabet.
