Instant Dissidence: She's Lost Control

Instant Dissidence: She's Lost Control

18th May 2011




An immersive dance installation looking at epilepsy, and the control behaviours involved in the avoidance of an epileptic seizure. She’s Lost Control (2010) is the second in a trilogy of works exploring conceptual and physical interfaces between dance, epilepsy and drug research. It concerns itself with the healthy body, the body which is not in an epileptic state, and behaviours of avoidance or control which may keep the body in that state. It addresses both Marcalo’s experience as an epilepsy sufferer and that of other well known sufferers such as Joy Division singer Ian Curtis.
