Collaboration I
“Durational and minimalist in nature, this piece is in direct connection with the size of the glass and water inside of it. The piece explores relationships between people in a Russian-roulette and consists of two performers each taking turns drinking water from the same glass and then spitting the water back into the glass until the water is completely depleted”
