Synopsis

Weavers is a display of four individual exhibits – situations presented in a sequence of four stories. Each of the four moves before the viewer; each has its own name, and each establishes its own world, whilst one sacrifices its title for the sake of the entity. The first piece entitled Spring Water is a prologue, while the second, Pavers, talks about the endless displacement of sediment deposited through time. They are followed by the Two Gatherers, a narrative about the attachment and addiction to people and property. The performance is concluded by Weavers, in which the performers focus on weaving the pattern of a carpet that finally documents the performance and rounds it up as an entity. The exhibits of the story are not directly interconnected. The space between the end of one story and the beginning of another is presented as an independent entity in which the tool of the play is the presence of (non)performance.
