Reusable Parts, Endless Love - a performance by Gerard and Kelly, at the Centre National de la Danse

Reusable Parts/Endless Love is a score-based, interactive performance installation for a rotating cast of four dancers, presented on a potentially infinite loop. The dancers transmit and transform the instructions for a kiss between a man and a woman into a machine-like production of unscripted representations of intimacy. Each manifestation of the work begins where the previous one left off, accumulating endlessly for the duration of an exhibition.

Reusable Parts/Endless Love was commissioned by Danspace Project/St. Mark’s Church on the Bowery, New York, and first presented there in November 2011, curated by Judy Hussie-Taylor. The work was included in “Made in L.A. 2014” at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, curated by Connie Butler and Michael Ned Holte.

It was presented at the Centre National de la Danse in Paris, during the Festival d'Automne, 2017.
