Performance: Where we are not
(please check Project Description for information about the project)
This in another version of the performance. It is for 24 audience members, which are divided in groups of six. It takes place in one open space that is in turn set into five distinct spaces. Each of those spaces is a station where the audience groups rotate and experience a video, a book, a letter, instructions, waiting etc.. Then the lights are out except for one station where an encounter with my stand-in and I takes place.
The stand-in picks, several times, a member of the audience, embraces him/her until he/she either gives in to the hug, or moves back. This person is invited to sit and pick a page from the stand-in’s notebook, and she reads it in Spanish and translates it to us.
Memories and stories unfold, positions are constantly shifted, and the audience member is engaged and plays a major role in the dynamic and direction of the performance.
