CREATURES AT REST

On a slowly turning platform, three performers explore what simply being here can mean. This simply being here, of course, is not that simple—nor exclusively passive. While navigating through an intimate and fragile environment of rest, daydreaming, and maybe even sleep, they search for an embodied presence that can emerge from a paradoxically active resolution to not do.

This durational installation bets on slowness to create space for altered modes of attention and embodied sensorial perception. It considers the possibility for more resonant and less instrumentalizing ways of relating to whatever surrounds us.

Like an oasis, it hopes to offer a break from life at high speed. To value the richness that surfaces when time is stretched out. Here, things can be done at their own pace and timing, exist in their own space of radiance. Like in a laboratory, we explore what magic can emerge when we stop doing too much.
