Be Heintzman Hope presents three projects in dialogue with one another:

Switch, is a dance solo drawing from strip tease, lap dance, meditation, and intuitive martial arts.

Poetics to Activate the Technology of the Body is a dance video series inspired by guided meditations and work-out video’s “how to” approach. These dance videos are a monument to catching one’s breath, to calming the nervous system, as well as a digital spa.

Nurse Tree is an installation of body workers with the aesthetics and practices of care. It seeks to move beyond the critique of the medical industrial complex to a place where alternative economies of care exist. Grappling with the need for another vision of future while acknowledging the harms of utopic thinking.
