Forgot to Remember - Remember to Forget


Performance for Dance and Loudspeaker Orchestra
Evelyn Saylor (music) | Ruben Reniers / rubarb dance & art (choreography | dance) | 20 mins

In today's over-commodified world, we are given license to focus on ourselves exclusively, without obligation to the greater collective. We are offered the platforms to do so - ones which originated from our desire for connection, but morphed into means of self-marketing. Even the text you are reading is a disguised advertisement. What happens when you have inadvertently turned your personhood into a product? When your attempt at self-realization has made you your own shareholder, and invested you into a social credit system? How does the ability to curate one's own narrative effect individual memory? In the age of the emancipated individual, where do collective memory and responsibility live? When you are your own ruler, are you actually free?
