In "Breath into Doe, Whitney Vangrin's performance embodies somatic principles, metaphorically suggesting life-saving measures by breathing air into yeast dough via surgical tubing. This transformation of dough, traditionally associated with baking and nourishment, becomes an exploration of the body's malleability and its capacity to shift, adapt, and transform in response to external forces.
