Time She Stopped — Revisiting Rockabye by Samuel Beckett
Commissioned by the 14th Convention of the Association for Studies of Culture and Representation, under the theme of “The Representations of Apocalypse”, ARICA presented a work referring to Samuel Beckett’s play Rockabye.
Separation of voice and body is an element characteristic of Samuel Beckett‘s late period. In this performance we attempt to create a virtual image of the performer, separated like a ghost and looking at her “real” self on stage via video projection, so that Beckettian state of “ending but not being able to end” is more compellingly visualized.
