Sometimes we get an irresistible desire for going again to places that we used to know but have forgotten. However, we can’t conceive that if we head out there, the dreams and ghosts that we have left in the past will follow us.
Minority Stress – Things I Think But Cannot Say is a performance piece on the journey of two people going back to a place they have long forgotten through meanders on a warm spring evening. During the journey, while their bodies remind them how what they thought they had forgotten is kept hidden, they find paths that pass through the crowd, others and things they stand far from in that place, where everybody gets lost in. It investigates how simple questions we choose to forget, will turn into a collective experience within the space.
