Fish girl

excerpt from the novel ‘Self’ By Yann Martel
The clear liquid in our eyes is seawater and therefore there are fish in our eyes, seawater being the natural medium of fish. Since blue and green eyes are the colors of the richest seawater, blue and green eyes are the fishiest. Dark eyes are somewhat less fecund, and albino eyes are nearly fishless, sadly so.
But the quantity of fish in an eye means nothing.
A single tiger fish can be as beautiful, as powerful as an entire school of sea fairing tuna.
That science has never observed ocular fish does nothing to refute my theory.
On the contrary, it emphasizes the key hypnosis, which is
“Love is the food of eye fish and only love will bring them out”.
I no longer believe in eye fish, in fact, but still do in metaphor. In the passion of an embrace, when breath, the wind, is at it’s loudest and skin at it’s saltiest, I still nearly think that I can hear, feel the rolling of the sea.
I am still nearly convinced that, when my love and I kiss, we will be blessed with the sight of angelfish and sea horses rising to the surface of our eyes, these fish being the surest proof of our love.
In spite of everything, I still nearly believe that love is something oceanic.

This show was made possible through the Scotia Bank Dance Centre’s DanceLab series, and was presented in the Farris Theatre in the spring of 2005. thank you to daelik and coin gutter for their fantastic talent and willingness through out the creative process.


This is a video of a dance/theater piece between myself (Karl Frost) and Jennifer McLeish Lewis, performed October 2006 in Berlin at Tacheles during the Lucky Trimmer showcase. It is a structured improvisation.
