In Passing

A generative performance, the work is based on passing around 71 pieces of paper, each containing a small narrative – memories of friends, stories about relationships, the everyday occurrences that bring us together, or that separate us... The papers end by asking the reader to pass the paper along, to someone in the room according to specific instructions or characteristics. The performance tries to open a space in and amongst the audience, to set strangers into conversation and to dramatize the silent thoughts of a reader: the quetstion "who is that over there…?" becomes the beginning of finding commonality within the crowd.
