Practice-based research performance - 2: Untitled

2: Untitled explores the relationship between memory in the philosophy of Henri Bergson and the issues of performance documentation. The materials for this performance are the choreography of Roger Federer’s tennis match versus Tipsarevic on Nov. 6 2012, Proust’s mémoire involontaire and memories of Artaud from friends, his sister and his psychiatrist. Issues at stake are the mixtures of virtual/ actual/possible, the role memory plays in performance and the ethics and aesthetics of theatre making as subtraction with a beginning long before the public show followed by no ending.
