the moment I saw you I knew I could love you
A performance installation made in collaboration with film-maker Andrew Kötting, composer Graeme Miller and performer-chanteuse Claudia Barton with guest appearances by two octogenarians, Geoff and Rene, still in love.
The piece is about gut feelings; fight, flight and freeze reactions; impulse, love and undefended moments. It’s set in the belly of a whale.
Film and live action merge with sampled sound and siren song as the audience is cast adrift in life-rafts with only stories and half-remembered truths to sustain them. The Curious quest is autobiological; to expose from the inside truth and lies, biography and mythology; to probe how we compile and edit the stories of our “selves”.
Presented as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2011 and supported by Escalator East to Edinburgh in Association with Colchester Arts Centre.
