Beth Graczyk

One of You is Fake

One of You Is Fake is the second solo in Graczyk’s performance series Desire Motor following her inaugural solo Beast. Unfolding as an earnestly absurdist look at the future of mankind, Graczyk engages both mundane and exquisitely made objects to question our collective participation in the erosion of the physical, sensual and material world. Part science lecture, part song, One of You Is Fake densely accumulates physical movement ideas on the process of formation.  
With music composed by Cameron Shafii.

Album (excerpt)

Album (excerpt) responds to archiving the self from a root query: “I don’t know who will write a herstory about me, so I’m starting now to help them write it better.” Through text, dance and song, Album navigates a cartographic herstory written from places out of focus, from where history neglects to look. This research particularly depicts relationships to urbanity, vampires, love, and marginality.
Album is an excerpt of a longer performance that was presented at Brooklyn Arts Exchange.
