Burial (2011) imagines the funeral rites of Donner’s fictional “harvest” culture. Using a series of hand-drawn paper masks, Donner worked in collaboration with students from Professor David Birch’s Voice and Movement class at the Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY to develop movement-based rituals that were choreographed, performed, and documented in a single afternoon.
Burial is part of a multimedia body of work exploring the life-cycles, daily practices, and interdependent anatomies of two invented cultures that coexist symbiotically.
