Being and doing

This performance took place on the second floor of Chisenhale Dance Space, as part of Lakmaiers 'Dance and the Homemade' commission. Wearing an 80-meter-long red dress (the length of the building's stairwell), she sits in the audience benches, inflating white balloons and throwing them onto the dance floor. For two and a half hours she only breathes out while inflating balloons. The other end of the studio there are three TV-monitors, showing my journey up the stairs wearing the dress, the making of the dress, and CCTV footage of her face.
