“The war in my mind is over

Oh it has ended”

In response to Norah Lea’s work Jiwa and an extension of collaborative performance, contemplation/reclamation, this performance rendition of Jiwa explores what it means to make space for and to share vulnerability. For this performance, audience are instructed to spread themselves throughout Level 1 and Level 2 of the premise and to observe complete silence during the duration of the performance. As the performance unfold, the audience is encouraged to ask within themselves the nature of vulnerability and how we consume it as the performers perform semblances of it through spoken word and bodily interactions.

contemplation/reclamation: Jiwa was performed on the 20th of February 2019.
