Predictions, 2014

Performance / Duration: 30 minutes

Predictions is a site - specific performance, specially designed for Robert Morris’ Observatory – a famous land art work near Lelystad. The function of a "cosmic compass" intended in Morris’ work serves as a starting point - my focus diverts however from the movements of the sun and the planets. Instead I observe the site’s immediate environment: a steady flow of trains, trucks, cars and bicycles forming ever changing constellations. As patterns emerge and established, a series of predictions result is a scenario where daily chance and a perhaps grander scheme intersect. 

The script is enacted by 12 performers, 4 vehicles, 1 helicopter and a motorcycle gang. Audience is situated on one of the hills of the *Observatory* about 100 meters from the action. They can hear the predictions through individual headphones, and observe which of them come true and which don’t.
