while you were away

while you were away (2016)


‘while you were away’ is an interdisciplinary piece intersecting film and performance. The film immerses the performers as an uncanny mirror of the collapsing bodies, at times reflecting those on stage and at times revealing what they are not and what they could be; what is not there and what could be there. Images of absence create distance between the performers, making visible the poetics of loneliness.
