"Figures For Dashing"
12 Dec 2019
Baroness Elsa's Em Dashes - Astrid Seme
In collaboration with Astrid Seme, Boeks Gent, Stine Sampers & Mathilde Strijkdonk, Naomi interpreted the 'em dash' from within her performance practice & her experience as a classical trained dancer, where lines matter every time.
The idea was to create an object and start there.
This object shows words. The words transfer you, as a viewer, to another space/place in time. The performer decides when. Adds another layer? In the end you are left with nothing more then words lying on the ground, traces of places you've visited while watching the performer ripping the pages.
