Upon the place beneath

Performance with Lost Parade. First performance 2008.

This piece is a performed sonic exploration of the entropic.

The work brings together a collection of objects and materials from the everyday with a minimal choreography inspired by Beckett's insistence on the almost nothing.

Alluding to Francis Bacon's studio which has been reconstructed in the Hugh Lane Gallery, the performance lets the banal, ad hoc and chaotic take their place amongst the permanent, stable and fixed.
