Participatory performance (Collaboration with Ioana Popescu)
Immersive experience exploring the theme of Othering - the venue was filled with smoke and the floor covered with sand to disrupt sensory hierarchies. Participants were led through exercises that led to an othering of the self, before being encouraged to 'find a point of connection' with each other.
