This action takes participants through a series of absurd tasks. Oscillating between chaos and coherence, this work creates an environment of nonsense. Participants simultaneously create wall mounted grids, play tag, make sandwiches and read dessert recipes aloud. They hold story time, run circles around the room, duet count to 850 and stack/climb/drag.
By encouraging participants to dive into a kinetic and unpredictable environment, a responsive atmosphere is built. One that enables playful audacity, momentary awareness and the permission to be lost.
The nonsensical tasks serve as both ships and anchors, providing access to uncharted waters, stability when needed and a way back in when ready.
