Powderburn titled after a racial slur, is a performance piece that follows one man from his sun-burnt, war-torn homeland to an unnamed country in which cultures clash in cracked basements, men become brothers become enemies, and a class system assigns him the forever role of exoticized, eroticized, animal-like performer. As the performance (and performer) descends towards a construct that is intentionally volatile and unraveled, a persistent video camera becomes increasingly representative of the "audience;" it is through the constant gaze of this audience that each dance and demo becomes less sport and more spectacle.
