Small Acts Of Violence

Virtual Reality Installation, 2021  [  IN DEVELOPMENT  ]

Small Acts Of Violence immerses you in a narration of incomplete stories and temporary tableaus on the entanglement of love, pleasure and non consensual violence. This polyphonic narrative focuses on people who were assigned female at birth recalling experiences of both being violent and experiencing violence. Staged in surreal group therapy setting, you are invited to witness exploration of healing as five players take turns to direct and reenact scenes of violence and joy. The piece explores the binary of victim and perpetrator, the archetype of female as carer and nurturer and finding a place for contradictions. It is a live action single shot performative piece created specifically for a virtual reality.
