‘WAITING’, It can be an interruption, a pause or an obstacle to a future not yet begun. We wait for insight or for a bus. Until pains subsides. For word of a loved one, for toilet paper, money or a visa.
In ‘ Waiting’ different worlds clash quietly through traces of dance, performance and film in a mediation upon the fundamental human experience of waiting.
