Inspired by East Asian and post-dramatic aesthetics, informed by quietude, precision, and simplicity. “Passivity in art refers to the making of aesthetic distance. Instead of trying to aggressively transmit meaning to an audience, passivity exercises a spirit of ‘self-reliance’ that compels the audience to attend, focus, and participate imaginatively in the pursuit of signification, meaning, and pleasure.” Mari Boyd, The Aesthetics of Quietude.
“Takes the spectator to another time and place...powerful performance.” D. da Silva, Portugal, 2009
Geschichten werden von verkörperter Stille heraufbeschworen und erzählt, Gegenwart, Gedächtnis und Erinnerung transformiert.
