Untitled | A Work in Progress by Justin Cabrillos


What are the edges of a feeling?

Cabrillos’s Untitled turns the artist on stage into an anagram of emotions and feelings.Through motion and stillness, the artist becomes the connective tissue between an outburst and a whisper, a frown of amazement and a smile of disgust. Untitled showcases a body possessed by the forms and shapes of emotions as it eagerly finds ways to get more tangled in the plasticity and density of unformed feeling. Expressive and unique, Cabrillos’s performance playfully searches for new vocabularies of feeling..
