Vanessa da Silva ‘Stranger than Paradise’ Performance with Mary Feliciano




Vanessa da Silva will present a new performance in collaboration with the choreographer Mary Feliciano activating the space and engaging with the sculptures and the structure of the show. Designed to work within the exhibition, the event will explore elements of da Silva’s ongoing research on cultural identities through body language, spoken words & improvisation.

The land was kissed on the mouth
The seed sowed in the South under the burning Sun

Black, red, green, blue and white flavours
 Relish tang

A restive feeling gave power to the wind
It reached one of seven continents 
A major island with no hammocks

On the way it collected strength from clashing tongues
Hispid steams
Fused hairs
Unrooted fruits 

An Inland rebound of an outland departure (VdS)
