GRASPING THE FLOOR WITH THE BACK OF MY HEAD 2008


A vivid and playful light emanates from the title of the performance. The functions of the different performers receive equal weight and form a poetic synthesis. The result is a highly professional performance.
From The Danish Arts Foundation’s award speech on Mute Comp.’s Grasping the floor with the back of my head.
