Les Petites Morts: all my holes are theirs
CAN ONE MAKE THEIR SELF DISAPPEAR through an ultimate dedication to a third; relinquishing one's Self to one's own dissolution? And what does it mean for the visibility of the third person? Can the 'I-ing' of the three performers be transformed into intimacy? Can one die for someone else?
ALL MY HOLES ARE THEIRS is a trio by Aleesa Cohene and Jared Gradinger / Angela Schubot. After "I hope you die soon" it is the second part of their project "Les petites morts", an examination of the topic of death and dying. This piece is the attempt by two performers to disappear through radical devotion to a third. For Gradinger and Schubot, Cohene becomes the sole existing universe. But "all my holes are theirs" is also an intimate solo by and for Aleesa Cohene, who appears on stage as a dancer for the first time in this project.

„Does so much physical closeness makes you scared? "No," says Aleesa Cohene three days before the performance, "everything feels just right, like after a day at the beach after you're totally out of it." That sets standards that must be met. Gradinger and Schubot swallow. But then it will be much more than a day on the beach. Serious, sad, tender, dignified, virtuoso, great and with music.“
