Relay (Unplugged) - Brussels Days 21
A black flag floats in continuous motion. The black flag cannot be linked to one particular battle and hence defies easy interpretation. Drawing inspiration from the many recent protests taking place around the globe, a diverse group of performers relay one another in a fascinating test of endurance. Their movements pass back and forth between inertia and hope, resistance, and powerlessness.
They each individually take on the responsibility to keep the flag moving, but it is the collective effort required that makes Relay such a powerful symbol. In this ‘unplugged’ version, presented out of doors, the performers partner with the wind to keep the flag afloat.
