  • Do as I say, not as I do is a performance-in-development incorporating dance, physical theatre, storytelling and comedy to explore the fears, the enjoyments and the little routines that sustain human relationships through the lens of unreliable memories. Partners who each want to come out on top, and a territorial struggle over bed space. A performance that swings between the normal and the surreal; two sides of a couple do their best to express their relationship to you.

  • (Part of DeStress Fest)
  • Taking on an abstract form, the division of people from each other and themselves is expressed through the contrast between retrospective memory and emotions.
    Kesha journeys through her impressions of living, travelling and journaling throughout the Indian subcontinent for her first self-choreographed work. Drawing from personal incidents and nomadic by nature, the body is used as a vehicle of data, persistently trying to weave and thread together memories through physical exploration. Kesha reflects on the constant changes we all experience from the dichotomy of physical and metaphysical space.
