In Disappearance, the gradual destruction of the forest is underscored by the melancholic piano score composed by John Cage and the jagged interjection of a chainsaw. Disappearance bridges two strands of research, the first dating back to the Rosario period (1972-1984), secondly the Amazonia body of work from 2010. The fimed-performance was staged for the first-time at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (2015).
