Self-Unfinished

 

After showing Giszelle with Eszter Salamon at The Kitchen the week before, Xavier Le Roy returned to perform his famous solo, Self-Unfinished from October 16 through October 18, 2002. In this piece, Le Roy makes the human body unrecognizable, performing a metamorphosis through movement and pushing the limits of visual perception. Le Roy originally choreographed the solo in response to a multimedia collaboration between himself and photographer and filmmaker, Laurent Golding. There was a post-show discussion following the performance on October 17.
