At The Spot Where I Find Myself

Genevieve Murphy / Stichting Rizoom / NB Projects
Tue 22 Nov ’22 - Wed 23 Nov ’22
Solo performance by interdisciplinary artist Genevieve Murphy.
Tue 22 Nov ’22
Wed 23 Nov ’22

The piece explores the subject of privacy and how we identify with specific spaces that help us to release emotion, seek protection, and disappear into.

Stuck in a position of indecision, a woman becomes increasingly aware of her body in the space, observing her apartment as an extension of herself. "At The Spot Where I Find Myself" is an assemblage of memories, experiences and projections giving you an intimate glimpse into the artist’s world and the characters she has met along the way. Collaborating with Belgian multi-disciplinary fashion artist Tom van der Borght for the clothing this concert is claustrophobic, disturbing, introvert, humorous and delicate, with spoken word, sound, imagery and performance running throughout. 

  • Duur: 60 min.
