The Long Short Of It

Performances | English | Age 18+


 A sound and performance installation by Poorna Swami and Marcel Zaes.

An EXPORT REJECTS production.

Presented by The Mumbai Assembly.

The Long and Short of It is a durational sound and performance installation. In a sparse landscape of microphones and amplifiers, bodies find, occupy, and are displaced from land. Each body must act within a set of rules, while also confronting residues of previously occupied lands. In this unrelenting cycle, bodies wither as they try to keep time. Audiences are invited to enter, move around, exit, and re-enter whenever they like. 

An immersive soundscape of heavy, delicate, distorted, and sustained noise marks the setting. Dissipating time is amplified by recurring pulses. Never quite on stable ground, each body is absorbed into sequences of displacement and return. Intimacy emerges from these stark conditions. It remains unclear whether this is a map or the landscape itself.

This production is an outcome of Marcel Zaes' Studio Residency supported by Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.
