Still Standing

“Still standing” is a performance that explores the body as a vehicle of memory and site-specific live sculpture. Using movement, choreography and storytelling it is aimed at encouraging empathy and care as possible attitudes towards what’s left by history  – which directs us not only towards the past but also towards the present and the future.
