In W… Antje explores the relation of her body to a woolen ‘costume’, or body extension, in a journey of transformations and transitions. Changing the shapes of both the prop and the body through engagement and action, performer and prop engage in a silent dialog – perhaps in a self-involved quest of trying to find solutions and unity within their symbiosis.
W… is suitable for the whole family. The performance lasts 20 min. Audiences are invited to explore the wool after the performance. The development of this piece has kindly been supported by the Wicklow County Arts Office and Shawbrook Dance.
