“ReAct! makes me, as well as anyone that witnesses one of our performances, travel in time. When working I meet both the social and architectural spaces with the eyes, curiosity and playfulness of a child. Each performance is a physical team play where the hidden skeletons of one specific public space in our normative society are revealed and become an adventure.
In ReAct! I also get to face my own skeletons as a performer and turn them into strengths.”
