tracing the inside 

a home performance

Stay LIVE, performistanbul

may 2020 ​

 

 

I used to lead the audience to trace the exterior of the buildings with their hands to scan and sense its multiple textures, rhythms and surfaces. Touch is the way I build my relationship with the outside, the way I experience it on my walks and when practicing parkour. During the lockdown we have to stay at home and when we are outside touching is considered to be dangerous. I can only touch the inside for now so I am getting to know my room, I walk to all its corners. I want to trace it from the inside, following one continuous line, sensing its surfaces, corners, patterns and sounds. As you watch me trace the inside of my home you are invited to go and trace your own.
