no matter how many people believe in it
Here are a handful of photographs taken during our performance of What if everything we know is wrong? within a cleared out floor of Alhóndiga in Bilbao last weekend. This latest manifestation of the work was commissioned by Azkuna Zentroa as part of their final 3, 2, 1 programme – and was again retitled specifically […]

From a bag containing thirty pocket […]

The invitation, and our intention, is to find form for a new performance project we are calling What if everything we know is wrong?. Creatively, all […]
