IN THE FLESH I RESIDE
Solo Performance for voice, body and video
IN THE FLESH I RESIDE is about the beauty and the grotesqueness of living in the body, in the flesh, being the 'meat' that we are. Our thoughts, our imagination, our spirit is always free, living without gravity. But the body is vulnerable: our flesh is soft, unprotected, it can feel pain, it will decay and die in the process of living. Where is the meeting point between our flesh and our spirit, between the physical and the invisible, the limited and the limitless in us? Where does one begin and the other end? How much control do we have in this process of decaying and continuous transformation?
