ADDICT is a collaborative dance performance originated by choreographer Max Gorman, and premiered in March 2018. The work not only addresses the harmful stereotypes and societal assumptions placed on those facing addiction, but it tells the complex and dangerous story addiction weaves within our lives.
The $4,100 in proceeds from two sold-out shows of ADDICT went to the Helping Up Mission, a non-profit that works directly with those facing addiction.
The combination of photo, text, and type within a tight compositional frame create distance between subject and object. The type entraps the subject within space, even as it seems to reach and look just beyond the plane.
