Created through radical trust in the body, Faith hole choreographs itself through the unconsidered movements that rip through the artist. Going relentlessly forward, always embracing its future iteration, dismissing nostalgic lingerings of “self,” yet exposing the splinters of personhood to the public. In this solo work, Yaffe cultivates a non-transactional exchange between performer and audience, offering himself as an open orifice spilling fleshy histories with unguarded emotion. By excavating muscle memories as artifacts from a history of conditioning through classical dance training, internalized hetero-masculine values, and restrained hyperactivity, Yaffe strives to reveal the innately queer vocabulary that lives beneath.
