My Johansson

Performance as part of Gill Clarke's Day | 15 November 2016 | Between 6 - 7pm
Nor I

Nor I is a solo work based on the use of stillness and repetition in Samuel Beckett’s work. Investigating the impact of repetition on the human body, and its
traces in stillness, each movement builds upon the next, yet remains caught in an almost claustrophobic state. Reminiscent of a character in Beckett’s texts, the performer lingers between cosmic calm and cosmic chaos, almost as if caught in her own head,
repeatedly finding herself repeating stillness, repeatedly repeating.

First performed as part of What Remains 2016
