GIMP GAIT - PERFORMANCE from Pioneer Winter on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

"GIMP GAIT" is a solo for two. We worked to develop something that explores our private and public lives - how the perspective of the viewer may attempt to control or shape or have some sort of power over who we are. We have approached the work as a challenge to each other by devising benchmarks and directives that will allow for our bodies to interact naturally and without shame. We explored from the beginning how our fleshy bodies operate in tandem (surrogates to one another) without aid from a power wheelchair to facilitate gesture and the mechanics of movement. The title of this work discloses its origin: 'gimp', a slur meant to mark a weak or handicapped person and 'gait', the manner or style of a person's walk. We do not hide these from you - do you have a good view? Can you notice every part of our bodies - both the similarities and differences? This is Marjorie, and she wants you to witness her. This is Pioneer, and he is performing Marjorie's power.
