“The Sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it's here is up to us.”
Alexandra Elle
The sun has always played a big role in my life and that of my family, especially in that of my grandfather. While gardening he taught me to enjoy the small moments of sun in between work, and forget about time. In this performance I will construct a moment especially for you, a meeting between the you and the sun. As an attempt to make us consider the movement of the earth in relation to the sun.
In this work I use simple materials: cart-board, reflecting foil, and a hoist and fishing wire to create small moments with light. While seeing a beautiful copper sun rising, you will also see me as the mechanic at work, pulling the hoist that makes the sun rise. A play between seeing the sublime but also the mechanism behind it. In the performance I use theatrical lighting to mimic the sun. But also use actual light of the sun. A play between reality and theatrical reality.
