Memoryscan was an investigation into identity and ethnicity choreographed and musically composed by koosil-ja, partially written by Michael Portnoy, and accompanied by video segments by Benton Bainbridge and Casper Stracke. The performance took the form of an episodic sequence of danced vignettes in which projected images served to reveal the consciousness and memories of dancers Kathryn Sanders, Michael Portnoy, Margaret Hallisey, Mary Helene Spring, and koosil-ja.
