If you ever get super busy and start forgetting where you put things, you know how I feel when I just found this excerpt video I had a made a few years ago.

I made this video to try to cover more accurately the range of work I have been making – from stage work to what I call body installations. This also includes video from a shoot in the wrecked power stations in the Owens River Gorge in California.

Ken James dance excerpts from ken james on Vimeo.

Body Installations are an idea I had while on a residency at the Djerassi Artists Residency Program. I have always been interested in work, as in labor, and the dancer as a laborer. I could go on and on about this, and maybe I will at a future time, but I started doing a series of physical tasks (pulling trees, holding salt bricks out for deer, hanging off of buildings with bird whistles… you get the idea.

Enjoy the video!
