Call me Mermaid, if you like is an experiment to escape my own experience of time, momentarily. To pause for others, perhaps with others. Where does time go when it’s no longer here for me? And so I ask: would you be willing to take my time? Time, not me. Or time with me. If you’d like your time to shift, if you think you could use some extra time, perhaps this experiment is also for you. I’ve written down a list of activities I can carry out for you or with you. If a task catches your eye, pick it up and choose a time slot for it.
Call me Mermaid, if you like was presented in the framework of Co|LAPSe, an event organised by LAPS students from Uniart’s Theatre Academy in November 2017. Information about the registration process, the requested tasks, and my schedule, is available here (link not available at the moment).
