The Corresponding Distance by Claire Barrera & Maya Dalinsky


The Corresponding Distance is an environment, a relationship, a process and a performance that seeks to explore the connections between language, writing, intimacy and memory. Maya and Claire are two women of color who have known each other since they were 13. Over the course of 23 years of romantic friendship, they have amassed large amounts of correspondence in the form of letters, shared journals, mixed tapes and videos. Centered around these physical objects produced throughout their friendship, their performance and installation examines how a relationship is made through writing and how individuals are made within a relationship.
