And in me too the waves rises
20th-28th September 2019
And in me too the wave rises investigates materiality in an attempt to expand notions of space, time, process and participation. The work identifies with touch and notions of ‘being in touch’ as vital to how we de-centre the locus of self in order to face our problematic relations with each other and with our planet. The works on show explore ideas around the nature of membranes, inner and outer-ness, states of emerging and disintegrating and the narrative of presence – offering a space in which materials become unstable and are subject to rupture and change.

The world around kept moving fast as always, but the stillness was going".

Any line between the performers and audience is blurred; and this act of blurring, it emerges in the course of one’s experience and interaction with the piece, is in fact a fundamentally key theme of the work...Observation Room invites members of the audience to both enter and remain in it. The duration of one’s stay, and the choice whether to embrace a passive spectator role or to actively engage and interact – is entirely up to us".

OPENLAB is a model for professional self-development for performers devised Antonio de la Fe. It hosts open sessions for anyone interested in a shared space for performance practice. In this way, OPENLAB could be understood as a co-working space for performers. At the same time, OPENLAB proposes a frame of work that revolves around a basic question: what does ‘to perform’ entail?
