Performance with a jungle gym
Three performers each pull a mass of sugar on a jungle gym until the masses solidify and manage to hang by themselves. The focus of the performance was on the material, and the changes in the material over time. From warm to cooler, volatile to chewy, dark but translucent, to becoming lighter and opaque. The shift of control, from the material to the performers, was also central to the work.
The performance lasted about 30 minutes.
