Through the course of Sweet Ice there is a loose narrative involving a lone figure performing with a block of ice reminiscent of a burial slab. Both the ice and floral arrangement allude to traditions of the preservation of bodies and the masking of decomposition. The performer’s role in the storyline evokes multiple beings existing between realms.The figure is simultaneously in a state of mourning and transcendence; they are the body of the dead, the body of the living left behind, and the body of a new form emerging.
