Valley Ice Skating Rink, Van Nuys, California. This section of the My Beowulf project was performed at a community ice rink. It used this site and the specific conditions of an icy ground to create a work based on the battle between Grendel and Beowulf. Grendel’s mother is played by a Zamboni and the audience enjoyed an all-skate following the performance.This piece was made into a short film in collaboration with filmmaker George Langworthy and Merridawn Duckler.
