Swan Song

Creation and performance: Jil Guyon

Music: Alain Presencer, The Singing Bowls of Tibet

Influenced by Butoh and German expressionism, Swan Song is a solo performance that addresses themes of pain, possession and death. The work begins with a still, circular landscape that gradually dissolves into clouds of white powder as the movement sequence unfolds. Combining repetition and slowness with Tibetan bowl music, the piece reveals itself as a minimalist performance-ritual.
