*Reflection is an extract from the larger performance of Too Shy to Stare.
The viewing of the self in the body of an ‘other’ is the form used by the artist Davis Freeman in his piece Reflection, addressed to a single person per performance. His performers embody the person they are performing for in such a way that allows freedom and space for the possibility to reconsider ones self.
Peggy Phelan notes ‘One always locates ones own image in an image of the other’. But what if the other was the self?
This new version of Reflection is created with six Portuguese dancers to give each audience member their own unique experience.
