Combining original music, contemporary dance and theatre, Porcelain explores notions of heredity and lineage through movement, song, and dialogue. Addressing responsibility, performance, and expectation, the performer self-fragments and transforms – shape-shifting and trying on aspects of different personas as possibilities for self-realization while unearthing the residual histories that impel the body to move
