Premere: June 2018, Das Theatre, Amsterdam
My reclaimed word for the 21st century is Liquid- specifically starting from thinking about my own life and attitude to fixity, and developing an ongoing artistic research around fluid substances- with thickened and coloured water, with gravity, ropes, pumps, sunlight, snow, rain and sometimes people. My second reclaimed word for the current times is Angel- specifically in relation to constant movement and change inherent in life. Michel Serres’s understanding of angels as messengers had a profound effect on this work. The performance is a result of me putting these two, at first sight, unconnected categories of knowledge together and insisting on their resonance.
