Danièle Wilmouth: June 15-August 3



A Heretic’s Primer on Love & Exertion
29 incidents of dual consequence

Directed by Danièle Wilmouth
Written & performed by Trevor Martin & Kym Olsen
24 minutes, film transferred to video, 2007

Synopsis:


Pulling from traditions of vaudeville, movement and performance art, artists Trevor Martin and Kym Olsen slip from monologue to dance, female to male, in a collection of related vignettes. A Heretic's Primer on Love & Exertion reveals the duality of identity and a collapse of meaning - probing the construction of gender, the manipulation of desire, and the colonization of the human body within a web of social dysfunction.

A Heretic's Primer on Love & Exertion was produced in 2007 and is based on the live stage works of performance artists Trevor Martin and Kym Olsen.
