In this day-long performance, /skeɪn/, Thomas explores the generational impacts of narratives regarding legacy and fear of scarcity. Thomas uses materials of personal significance to knit herself into a series of cocoons, only to unravel them and repeat. /skeɪn/ promotes meditation on the origin, significance, and utility of stories that construct identity and legacy.

Thomas performed /skeɪn/July 19th, 2017 at VAE Raleigh as part of Under Pressure, a monthlong festival of endurance performance work at VAE Raleigh.
