Performance (collaboration with cindy cordt ) 2020
Two individuals stand on the stage, telling their story through the movement of their bodies, rocking back and forth, a screen between them marks a dividing line, the cracking of the peanut shells under the runners interrupts the silence, an everyday action can create meaning. After the barely audible rubbing of the runners on the floor, the action shifts to this screen between the two protagonists. Cindy‘s flat hand now slides over the partition to Chen’s side, who grabs her fingers and studs the tips with peanut shells. The audience follows the game with the unknown, the interaction, which finally ends with the performers tying each other together with paper clips and nylon threads and putting the relationship to a real test.
