The Daedalus Effect and other dilemmas assumes the mythical persona of Daedalus, the taciturn engineer who invented the labyrinth, and Icarus, his ill-fated son, as metaphors for the pitfalls of product development. Modular objects created by invited guests (writers, sculptors, mathematicians, architects, engineers) are placed throughout the space as improvisational scores for this solo dance performance. Like puzzle pieces, combinations of the objects generate physical dilemmas that prompt strings of full-body gestures.
