Mo(u)rning Musk is a performance commissioned for THIS IS WHAT I WANT, a festival produced in collaboration between THEOFFCENTER, Jesse Hewit, and Rachael Dichter that intently redefined the relationship between intimacy and performance. Performance documentation by Mark McBeth is available to watch online.

Mo(u)rning Musk stars Kevin Seaman with Juan Gudino, Danyol Leon, and Kevin Lewis with costuming in collaboration with Juan Gudino and Andrew Harbour. The short performance piece follows three men on their daily pre-work rituals and a scent spirit that they summon during their workouts. The spirit captures their sweat and musk before they cleanse themselves for the workday.
