the moment I saw you I knew I could love you


© Hugo Glendinning

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”.

Supported by the British Council as part of PS122 Global.
