"Performance is a contact with public...
... it is a self-immersive presence..."
Does it matter?
Performance, March 2023.
BIFPA´23, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
4 buckets with sand, bicycle, red high-heeled shoes, echo, poem, sky, window as a cage, memories.
Hovering above the ground.
The sun is in pixels.
There is no echo in this space.
Coordinates are as a key.
When you lie down,
when you lose your balance...
You move as long as the ground is
Sand flies into the sky and returns back Everything returns back.
¨Does it matter? -losing your legs?...
...Does it matter? -losing your sight?...
...Do they matter? -lthose dreams from the pit?...¨ (extract from a poem by S. Sassoon)
Dreams when I was a kid.
My impersonal story
Performance, November 2022,
We are all connected. Migration Museum, Lewisham, London, UK.
Borrowed shoes, speaker, audio record of a conversation with my father about our relatives, storytelling.
Each personal story goes beyond the limits of an individual when it becomes spoken, recorded, documented.
Following the history of a single person, we discover a considerable amount of geographical, historical, and cultural revelations that begin to exist on a collective level.
Each story also reveals the people´s connections that exist, were, or are forming.
Finally, each of us can ask ourselves: "What about my own story?"

¨...Experiences of distance, metaphorical, emotional, physical impasse seep through us.
...The shell dissolves, rubs off, peels off, and the space is filled with a memory that has no limits, no borders, no time...¨ - extract from the common concept.
