IT IS A PERFORMATIVE ASSEMBLAGE
A WAY OF BEING IN THE SPACE TOGETHER
KEEPING US SAFE
A PERSONAL STORY
A FIELD TRIP



score #1
first, you sit in silence
silence provokes there is a movement
you know where is the point you need to touch
touch it and continue getting closer
censorship
– how to overcome?
translate
place it somewhere you don’t know
taste taste


relation #1
"Sahara
walking backwards in time
jumping into the future
the saliva is leaving
leaving
the body forever
a farewell march"

relation #2
"Seals are your co-performers. It’s hot and we are lying down on the stones. The sun is burning. We are fantasizing about events from our lives.  We are not talking. We don’t know whether our thoughts are real or fictional. Our organisms are becoming sounds. We are melting with the stones."
