Creatures at rest
Durational performance by Alice Van der Wielen-Honinckx, 2021.

On a slowly turning platform, three performers explore a slow movement practice. In whatever position they find themselves, they search for as much rest and comfort as possible, while deeply listening to inner as well as outer movements.

This durational installation bets on slowness to create space for altered modes of attention and embodied sensorial perception. It considers the possibility for more resonant and less instrumentalizing ways of relating to whatever surrounds us. Like an oasis, it hopes to offer a break from life at high speed. To value the richness that surfaces when time is stretched out.
