    “Personal Text Public Body”
    2007, 15:00

    Personal Text Public Body is an ongoing interdisciplinary project which explores autobiographical, relational and political aspects of the self(s). Part of the creative process involves making short films termed as ‘Performative Documentaries’. This selection of short film episodes intertwine inside (studio) and outside (urban) locations mirroring the intimate and social aspects of the performers. A range of themes unfold such as; autobiographical memory, the nature of boundaries, the links between private and public performance, the extent to which all social action is ‘performance’, the way emotions and dreams are embodied, and the bodily expression of the self(s). By presenting this heterogeneity of movement and spoken narratives, the episodes are intended to stimulate thinking and body awareness around how we can ‘re-vision’ our identities in more expansive ways and recognise that to do so, is a political act.
