Lessness, still quorum, followed a research residency at the Warburg Institute London exploring tarot's cultural heritage and the encounter between action, storytelling, symbolism and magical thinking. During the hour long performance sculptural forms were configured and reconfigured by 4 dancers composing the architectural structures and symbols found in my own 22 major arcana tarot cards, gently metamorphosing between each tableaux. The documentation and resulting animations form the basis of my tarot deck Unreasonable Silence, an experiment which is expanded in Command Lines.
