In this excerpt, five dancers channel and splice moments of heterogeneous movement and text in a performative interrogation of a world saturated with image and language. They dance, hum, mutter, and mumble; deploy sandbags, a moveable stair unit, a microphone and headphones.

a world, a world is the 3rd chapter in Austin’s body of work titled (Un)Made, deploying various strategies for revealing the limits and bounds of the individual as a discrete entity in each iteration. a world, a world pairs two domains: one in which the dancers and their surroundings are permeated and suffused with texts and iconography, and one in which they inhabit and are inhabited by a spacious, meditative and empty world.
