Actions of preservation and maintainance suggest something routine is about to happen. Swivel Spot is concerned with change and how we might miss the actual moment of transformation. Haunting the performance are the remains–a skeleton of logic from something that no longer applies. Two performers roam the space, mostly on their own, while a third covers everything in a thin plastic film that needs to be pierced in order to go on.
