The Life of Props


(2012)


Life of Props

 

Objects speak, words depict, statues dance and the actor works with all of these elements in order to transform both himself and them.

 

The actor handles an object, giving it life, composing and creating images. A stick or a flag is a support and an extension, a weapon and a tool; it is part of the actor's body and a partner to collaborate with, it is challenging in its demands and generous in the freedom it bestows. The stick answers back and judges the actor's precision.

 

Thinking of how God blows life into a lump of clay, the actor tries to build a sequence that confirms the existence of the whole creation with a plank of wood, in a material, concrete and down to earth style. The accurate form of a statue secures energy to be revealed, while random physical actions encapsulate rhythms and associations which - in connection with a text - distil a density of meanings.
