The stage curtain was woven by the weaver collective Acroma from Dakar, and developed in collaboration with Chiara Figone and Saidou Ndiaye. The curtain will at some point be returned to Dakar, where we will reuse the fabric in a forthcoming collaboration. In addition to the fine quality of the fabric, it holds cultural value and will be reused for costumes and as gifts to those involved in the project.
In combination with the work „The Play, The Actor, The Improvisation“ it was shown the first time at Den Frie in Copenhagen in the show „I slipped into my first metamorphosis so quietly that no one noticed“. A group show curated by Gitte Villesen.
