Disappearance emphasizes the primacy of the sensory perceptual encounter, as negotiated by performers and audiences -- in recognition of anticipated and unanticipated elements comprising the situation as it unfolds in real time and presents to the engaged subject.


 Kim Nelson danced professionally in Chicago and New York, 1993-2002. Since 1998, her interests in surrendering to body led inquiries initiated her in-depth study of Authentic Movement.  Since delving into Disappearance in 2013, she is called back to a space of performance from a very different place than from that which she entered.

Andrew Marcus founded DISAPPEARANCE in 2010 to explore boundary space between the ordinary, the beautiful, and the sublime. DISAPPEARANCE develops practices to effectively transcend such boundaries; to encourage experience of the magical and the erotic; and to unequivocally engage the real.
