Harsh Digital Two-Second Silence is an improvised performance by artist Tess Dworman that utilizes movement, acting, and sound. The performers move through different textural moods and qualities that formulate moments of meaning without reconciling the value or importance of any one occurrence over the next. In doing this work, Dworman aims to conjure a residual feeling that honors the ongoing-ness of life. This work-in-development is being commissioned by the Chocolate Factory Theater and will be presented there in 2019.
