TALK TO ME
TALK TO MEDecember 9, 2017The Watermill Center, Water Mill, NY.TALK TO ME, by Brian O'Mahoney, is a new performance work that explores anxieties around communication by establishing new languages based on image and gesture. Nonsensically but seriously investigating interpersonal relations, TALK TO ME is a romp through new and absurd physical dialects. Constantly finding more elaborate and obtuse ways to communicate, O’Mahoney seeks to interrogate the source of our collective anxiety around communication.photo © Lindsay Morris
If There is a Paradise
If There is a ParadiseMay 23 & 24, 2017.Shown as a part of Living Altar by Kaimera Productions. The Little Theater at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center. Queens, NY. If There is a Paradise is a solo work centered on exploring catharsis post-grief. The goal of the work is to celebrate life, allowing the grief to pass and welcoming joy in. Balloons, dancing, and melodrama are tools to combat the seriousness of death and daily life, a manic moment to combat a depressive episode.photo © Jonathan Camuzeaux

CAKE CAKE CAKEAugust 9, 2015curated by Robert Wilson and Noah Khoshbin for "Discover Watermill Day"at The Watermill Center. Water Mill, NY.I’ve become sort of obsessed with the idea of birthdays and the disappointment in them. Birthdays no longer hold the magic they held when we were children, and now are essentially just another day of the year. I created the image of a child at a birthday party no one showed up to. The importance of the date lost on everyone else, the child (myself) eats the cake by himself: enjoying the solitude of having an entire cake to oneself, while also grieving the loneliness.photo © Kristian Kruuser
Todo El Mundo Es Kitsch
Todo El Mundo Es Kitsch July 25, 2015Curated by Robert Wilson for the "Circus of Stillness: The Power Over Wild Beasts" Benefit Gala at the Watermill Center, Water Mill, Long Island.In a collaboration with Robert Wilson, I crafted a creature: part missing link, part bird, part kitsch. Inspired by the club-kid culture and sytle, as well as the music of Marc Ribot & Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog (the title coming from one of their songs), the resulting creature performed in a manner where everything in the world was bliss; lounging on a bench, crouching on the bench and posing for pictures with guests, just enjoying the meaningless of itself.Photo courtesy Jared Siskin © Patrick McMullan

Water Mill,  Long Island, NY. 2.5hr duration.bahamut is a meditative piece on the pressures of depression. The performance is a dance with the weight of the large ball, which is filled partially with water. I slowly grab and claw at the ball, attempting to pull myself out from underneath.photo © Jake Jeon
