Larisa David: A Watched Pot Never Boils
Length: 01 hours 00 minutes
A Watched Pot Never Boils explores states of waiting. If waiting is inescapable, how do we deal with this interval? The performance looks at waiting not as a passive state but as an active moment in which histories of waiting and lived experience can help us navigate the emotional and temporal aspects of our present moment. Here, waiting is felt primarily on a bodily level, affected by everyday dramas brought on by different situations. Whether preparing for a first date, queuing in a shop, or living together, the performance reflects on waiting in relation to others, learned perception, and presence.
