Am Flutgraben, Berlin, 2019In collaboration with Georgina Hill, 15 min
A fiction of a non-fiction. A poetic consideration of elements within the current capitalist paradigm, related to individual and corporate modes of selling, paying for not paying, invisible labour, visibility, and purchase powering, predominant within an advertising/product placement framework.
While reading two separate texts that create an inherent dialogue, the two performers wear body rigs, which live-stream their points of view and their selves; YouTube videos related to the texts are triggered via QR codes at stages of the performance, adding another layer to the interplay. The text of the performance will also be displayed at the same time.
Through abstractification, and concrete references, the work explores a current societal state, with the possibility of an ephemeral (or more sustained) sense of coordination / fertilisation / solidarity / communion.
A thought experiment and a speculation; a lateral, and analytical consideration of some of the intersectional philosophies governing technological and human development within contemporary economic-led systems.
