Niko Raes

Shattered Dreams

Fri 8 June 8.00pm


Shattered Dreams is a brief and intense physical endurance performance in which the artist hangs in ropes connecting wrists and ankles for as long as he can. Raes’s body is painted white, hanging in a void with the sound of breathing, pullies and ropes. The performance begins with the grace and composure of dance; calm and elegant. Gradually the body strains, a person fighting to stay in balance, physically and mentally.
