IInfluenced by the difference of how subjects are presented and watched in visual arts and dance, Zavala constructs scenarios choreographed with the agency of a painter who is hyper-aware of being watched from 360 degrees. So;/):;me is a pictorial, cinematic choreography where subjects become objects and objects become subjects in constant mapping of what and who is being watched. The gazed and the gazer are taking agency horizontally. A solo female body, daring to gaze back. The body as a shifting-perspective-vessel, as its own device of mediation.
