A Gift To Those Who Contemplate The Marvels Of Renegades
Performance, 2017, 35 minutes.
The performance involves establishing a narrative archive featuring a selection of seven characters, namely Isabelle Eberhardt, Jan Janszoon, The Ghoul, Haroun Kanshour, The Carpet, Diego Diaz, and Meteor. These seven characters float between real figures and are marginalized from history, whether it be from the history from below, fiction, or almost fiction. The selection of these characters, with various statuses of renegades, has to do with "Queerness, Mercenaries, Myth, Forced Migration, and Diaspora", and the narrative will explore these various currencies of locomotion. The props and tools used in the performance play the role of the characters' archive. This archive consists of books, cartographies, poems, images, soundtracks, and objects. The performance narrative moves between all these materials as a means of storytelling.
