Nest Knead and Porcupine Nest Building Exercise (2008) are connected performances that question desire and interpersonal attachment. How do we create a place for ourselves and others to share in life? What are the terms and needs of this space? Using a porcupine persona, in Nest Kneed I prepared latex nesting material by kneading it with sugar and glitter. Then, I used that material to practice building a nest that could hold me in Porcupine Nest Building Exercise.
