Uneasy Truce responds to, and embraces the space that it is hosted by:
the architecture of the building and the body of the performer.
In this work, I am drifting with giant hairy willow herb in the south aisle of the deconsecrated church of St John the Divine in Gainsborough. Together we are challenging the weightiness of the world - the briefest glimpse of defiance makes me long for change.
In performing with, and in, my own shifting sound of breath as it moves towards its breakpoint,
deep time, passing time and the fleeting moment, converge.
The 'in-front-of-me' stillness and inertia tremors only to finally falter and fade.
To speak for, and with, the unseen seems a grand and fearsome notion!
