Lift/Carry/Hold was a relational performance that visualizes the trust, faith, and intimacy that are part of the subtle negotiation that occurs in the moment when one person takes on the responsibility for the welfare of another.

Participants are lifted and held for as long as possible. The time that each person is lifted and held varies depending on their size and weight, and my endurance at a given time.

There is no speaking during the sequence, and all of the physical mechanics of the lift are navigated in silence at the moment of each interaction.
