A man throwing stones into a canal in Belgium, with two children watching him from behind. But something’s not quite right: he’s not actually throwing them into the water; he’s throwing them at a sitting duck! Faced with this situation, Australian artist Nicola Gunn tries to get him to stop, but in vain. For Gunn, an artist drawn by human relations and the links between personal experiences and social structures, this episode is the wellspring of a whole series of questions about peace, conflict, violence, ethical relativism, the role of art. And out of it is born an enthralling, sharp, unexpected performance: using the rhythm of a portable stereo, and intertwining text, visuals and choreography, in an explosion of energy, it raises questions about human fragility, creativity and the border between art and life.
