eFEMURal | PerformanceSW's "Inside)(Outside" | 2015 | Oil & Cotton, Dallas TX | Documentation by Chris Moezzi and Jonatan Lopez In March of 2014, CAT SCOTT was hit by a car that broke her femur in two places and ripped the flesh around her knee open and out. Her leg was nearly severed from her body. It was maybe a minute or two before someone came over to help but, for a moment, she was alone, bleeding and helpless in the street. For eFEMURal, CAT SCOTT created a cast of her leg and destroyed it while reciting the screams of desperation that define that helpless moment. eFEMURal is about fear, loss, physical disability and pain but it’s also about the purging of trauma by embracing that moment and taking control of it through performance.
