This is how we disappear examines the complexity, frailty, and weight of human relationships in contrast with the fluid simplicity of the passage of time. Two performers embody Suniti Dernovsek’s unique movement vocabulary and are captured in their actions by custom electronics, driving a real-time response in sound and video. These elements blend seamlessly to create a stylized and fantastical visual landscape, caught in the persistent pull of time yet defined by a journey that sets it utterly apart.

This is how we disappear was funded in part by a 2012 Regional Arts and Culture Project Grant.
