What cracks appear in the density of everyday pressures and ageing? Why is the body sometimes sensitive to every sound?
Internal Terrains explores life as a choreography of decades, in search of what’s at stake as we move from one decade to another. A hanging cage projects shapes onto skin as Natasha’s body is captured in movement. A stuffed crow drives a car. Intermittent sounds are juxtaposed with powerful silences, creating dreamlike moments for both artist and audience to encounter.
Poetic and sensual, the performance translates personal stories into visual metaphors around body, memory and migratory identity, playing chords with films and installations, metronomes, masks and electric shocks.
