Tarik Kiswanson, a Swedish artist of Palestinian descent, presents his first performance titled AS DEEP AS I COULD REMEMBER, AS FAR AS I COULD SEE.
For this new production, Kiswanson transfigures his writing into a coming-of-age narrative performed by a group of children moving freely amongst the audience members. Fragments of childhood sensations and adult reflections are combined and arranged poetically to create a sound landscape. Through this performance, the artist offers a polyphony of human experiences. AS DEEP AS I COULD REMEMBER, AS FAR AS I COULD SEE expresses with tenderness the questions, hesitations and doubts felt by all children, while exploring questions of borders and displacements, but also the construction of the self in a cosmopolitan world. With this live work carried by a phratry, the artist meditates on the human condition, in constant movement.
AS DEEP AS I COULD REMEMBER, AS FAR AS I COULD SEE is based on texts written by the artist and performed by the children.
