Thorax Sack Dance

Brian Sentman brings sculpture and dance together to create a social commentary on Couch Potato Culture. Dancers, strapped into beanbag chairs -- the "Thorax Sack" -- are transformed into bugs and perform a dance inspired by movements of stinkbugs, beetles, and other insects. The "Thorax Sack" is a constant reminder that comfort is near but too much comfort can have a thwarting effect on one's desires. The outcome of the dance will be a DVD commodity to be bought and watched while sitting trapped in the very seat that the dancers perform in.
