An artist you may not have heard of because she travels primarily in dance circles, I promised both myself and Regina I would discuss her work at great length. I suppose if you define “great length” as 200 words, I will have full filled that promise. The extraordinariness of Rocke’s work lies her ability to take cliche material from both high and low culture and bring meaning to it. For example, she uses the tired method of reading aloud artist writings such as those by Coco Fusco, she speaks and moves with “purpose”, and she booty dances to the beat of a popular dance tune. Regina Rocke mixes a variety of performance crap I would never want to see into something I could watch almost indefinitely.
