2500 Bricks

2500 Bricks is a film documentation of a movement performance that was played out and documented on the construction site of Wonderfruit Festival in Pattaya, Thailand in December 2019. The performative method applied was task making, carefully choreographed around the making of 2500 sun dried bricks that constructed an undulating paved pathway through the festival grounds. The performance explored how the chosen material became a ‘demanding prop’ that changed the combined ensemble of performers/brick makers into a coherent collective. The festival audience witnessed how the path moved forward each day, shaping the contour of the landscape – an obvious stage where passers-by from the festival would gather to observe the path progress. By cultivating the positions of performers/brick makers with mutual respect and curiosity the roles increasingly overlapped as our costumes became increasingly stained. The festival guests witnessed the emerging ensemble. I did the performance in parallel with the work taking place at the festival in collaboration with two brick masters A and Ga, two sculpturers Teeraporn Khuankhwaisap and Pongsakorn Srimuang and my photographer Laurence Moss. The project was in collaboration Wonderfruit Festival and Ab Rogers Design.
