In 2009 SPILL launched a National Platform for emerging talent at the National Theatre Studio. In a special double bill two of the selected artists now present new works. Sylvia Rimat is one of them.
Performance artist Sylvia Rimat follows the aspirational and possibly impossible goal to create a show never to be forgotten by its audience members – not a single one. By presenting memory tasks and techniques, the audience will systematically be trained to remember. ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’ draws on presence and sight, on what happens in our brain when we create memories, and our urge to be special and forever commemorated.
