She lets words meet her body. The flesh of language moulds her porous skin from the inside. Words shape her substance into a specific body; a fictitious reality of change. This body; time poured; and then that body. She drifts, thinks and imagines. She swallows what she perceives, making it part of her matter. She shifts, and the space shifts too: together they leak into a new situation, another fiction; realities redrawn as she moves through them.

Cheating Discipline and Other Artistic Affairs slides in-between and through layers of discipline(s) in the body. It drifts in and out, cheating dance as disciplinary labour and artistic discipline by having affairs with other artistic disciplines; a multidisciplinary body. Going through social, imaginary, linguistic and sensorial bodies without faithful continuation, this cheating creates manifold affairs. Adulterous contracts, seductive leakings and varying ways of spending time together comes to exists within but in deception of disciplinary order.
