4bidgallery presents:
Performance “Hired Hands” and Discussion On Will and willfulness

Artist: Marlieke Burghouts (movement) & Vincent Twigt(sound artist) (NL)

Style: Performance & Discussion

In the performance, Marlieke deals with the social-political concept of Will and Willfulness. When receiving the charge of being willful it means that you stand outside of the general will or the social structure and are thus being seen as stubborn or was standing in the way of someone’s happiness.

The performance deals with 100 fragile blocks, audience participation and partially improvised sound. The audience members are being given the task to create the landscape of my performance space around me with very fragile white blocks. They are being asked to willingly create the space, but does the act of placing the blocks feel willing or willful?
