THE SEEDS THAT RELEASE
The Seeds that Release is a site-specific interactive performance exploring the inevitability of severance and the role of divine interference. Covered in white and rotating on circular mirrored platforms, enshrined by a domed web, two figures are bound together by an infinity of malleable ropes. Audience members are invited to play God to the situation and sever their ties over the course of four hours. At last, when the performers are released from all bonds, they discover their own independence, confusing yet liberating, as painful as it is pleasurable. Yet their fragile and unique discovery is ultimately the audience’s responsibility. If we did nothing, they would learn nothing.
