Practice 39. Put Yourself in My Shoes

Two bodies

Performance

2018

 

Put Yourself in My Shoes was an inter-personal performance project that entailed the physical (re)location of oneself in the territory of the other. This project took place at an exhibition space as well as in different part of the city where I would meet friends  to walk from point A to B putting ourselves in each other’s shoes.

Departing from the question: How do we move forward together as a society? This project was interested in opening up an intimate space of social re-programing and somatic transformation where we literally embody someone else’s point of view by fostering non-verbal communication, deep kinesthetic listening and corporeal adaptability. Going to that liminal space of the skin where the line between the seer and the seen  blur.
