BUT MY DEVOTION IS UNCONDITIONAL (2013)

A performer onstage speaks to the audience. This stage however is not at its usual place. Performer and spectators do not have the expected distance from each other but a much bigger one. What kind of relationship can be developed in this case? What remains graspable in this distance? Being hardly visible and audible with difficulty, how close can they come to each other? Experimenting with distances of the stage and of life, But My Devotion Is Unconditional moves at the edge of experimental stage acts that are usually all about the ‘here and now’, in order to explore the size of human nature and the performing arts, as well as the conditions and operational modes of our communication. The work is presented in two parts: a durational performance-installation and a theatre piece, which the audience sees in two different days, creating a community that returns to engage with it in different forms.
