Means Without and End

MEANS WITHOUT AN END

“...the topography created in a crumple and torn handkerchief in the depth of a pocket, where metric linear, time and space are collapsed into an unexpected topography of proximities and distances, where entirely different connections are made and events pulled into surprising intimacies and astonishing distances… Michel Serres

Do we keep a safe distance between ourselves and our reality, ourselves and our experiences? Do we seek to put a frame around feelings so that they are contained and cannot leak beyond the boundaries we allow them?
‘Means Without an End’ is an interactive one to one performance where a single member of the audience and the performer meet in a space and with a card game and the unique physicality of body contact, aims at discovering an infra sensual language that our reciprocal touch creates. The act of touching someone, like in a Tango presupposes a certain demand, a decision, an instance of response-ability.
