Life/Guard was a collaborative performance conceived by Bill Skaleski, Duncan Reilly and me. Over a 6-month process, we explored the nature of human connection via embodied movement, sound making, and discussion. Is it really possible to know other humans, when intimacy is both painful and pleasurable? What does it mean to choose vulnerability? How do we relate in a neurodivsere world with many ways of sensing, connecting, and communicating?
