Giants Deliver Diamonds is a performance that takes place over the course of one evening featuring wearable soft sculptures, fake fruit, a smoke machine, cake, and Crémant. Within this environment, a performer adorned with a baroque wig can be seen, while a DJ supplies a shifting soundscape in the background. Oscillating between states of concentration, the figure continuously moves through a range of improvised movements drawn from contemporary mannerisms to historical gestures from the baroque period.
The process-oriented nature of the set and performance are intended to reference durcharbeiten (a process of working through, by means of labor)—a method used in psychoanalysis whereby a person learns to accept elements of the unconscious to free themselves from a compulsion to repeat. They will enter and exit your peripheral vision in an instant, and through a constant labor.
We invite you to multiply your perspective and gaze at factors of transitional entropy. Lucid, they saunter: a boy band serenades you, a smoke machine spurts and gurgles. Sedna will stir the pot and shiver to loosen the threads while seals are born from blood, and giants turn refuse into gold. Octopi sleep in this Technicolor dream: frolic inside the murky. Come and go as you please inside these ritualistic agencies.
