Sacre Bleu! Or, Camembert 8 Euro is a provocative performance-as-research project that walks the line between dance theatre and performance art.  Sparked by a visit to Amsterdam's famous Red Light District and initially developed at Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme, France, the work examines the implications of putting the body on display and asks what it means to be looked at.  The performance-as-research process means that this work is rooted in questions we will explore and respond to through a series of site-specific performative experiments throughout 2012.

No. 1: Micro Museum 25th Anniversary, October 2011
