shall i sit here/Still GoingStill Going
is a solo performance created by Marina Collard with a film projection by Tom Paine. After a number of attempts to change activity, Marina is reluctant to leave dance behind. In Still Going
, she is not sure if, or why she is trying to retire. Drawn back time and again, undecided, unsettled and awkwardly suspended, both Marina and Tom are inevitably left hovering. Created and performed by Rahel Vonmoos, shall i sit here
is a layered presentation of recorded and live performance which integrates film, text, light and shadow and celebrates the physicality and simplicity of the performing body. It uses projection to create texture in space in which ideas about distance (temporal and spatial), duration and memory are played out. The development of this work was also prompted by Rahel's desire to involve elements of personal experience as a woman and mother - but these autobiographical elements can be understood in a wider public sense, as autobiographical to many.
