Playing on an endless, seamless loop, Sebastian presents the viewer with a rough and magnetic cosmic cleaner who tirelessly performs a series of ritualistic actions inside a bucolic landscape. The effort and fluidity of this man’s movement evoke a hypnotic ritual cleansing,intimate through its tactile sounds. Sebastian explores repetition, re-enactment,and impermanencewhile proposing that knowledge emerges through the repeated gestures of the body.

Sebastian is adapted from musician/composer Charles Quevillon’s live performance in Room with Sticks (created with choreographers Tedd Robinson and Ame Henderson).
