About his work at BDF:
Sean's solo, iSelf, has him performing alongside multiple projected images of himself - embodying the immediate present as well as its direct relationship to what occurred mere seconds before. The three sections allow him to first introduce his live, actual dancing body before then using an on-stage fixed camera and projection screen to dance with “iSelf”, which is a projected outline of his live dancing body. In section three, Sean becomes both the present self and its partner, the container and the contained, the immediate self and the framework, context, and constraints that the present moment lives within.
