Chapter 9

Is it about celebration? 

I don’t know — we laughed out loud. It’s all changingSince you left university?

Yes. And, it’s much more now since it connects to the fluidity of my own identity and gender. And, that’s why you want to show your community in your work, right?

I want to offer visibility to them and take the time to value the relationships that I have in my life right now. So, it has to do with relational aesthetics and the affective turn…

In a way, yes, but it’s the same thing. What do you mean?

Life and work are the same, for me. When I perform I’m the same person as when I’m not. There’s no separation. I’m not playing a role. And, what are you searching for?

Ways to find poetry in peoples’ meetings. I love to create situations that people meet and inside of this there are plenty of smaller encounters and connections. And there are different steps in this process that create a way. Parcour: this is the word. The course, the journey.

Yes. Like the stories I tell in a performance that during its course unfolds additional little narratives that may give the impression that are not linked, that are loose in the plot, but in fact all that is connected. I really like when others make these bridges between stories. Thus, it has to do with social networking. It deals with the social tapestry — we nodded in agreement.
