If we hadn’t taught ourselves that death is so horrible,
we would have not used it to hurt each other.
Maybe there’s still a chance to say: Oh! it’s not epic, it’s simple.
I’m trying to elicit a change in my memory, but they keep shooting.
We’re all so scared by our unoriginality and equal importance.
I’m so ashamed to be so defensive and alert all the time.
I should probably admit that I’ve known so much violence.
I’m sorry.
Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait!
Don’t go,

I’m bleeding.
Do you want to take a picture?

not so hard to imagine, is an experimental durational performance that examines the notion of violence, our obsession with it, and the stagnant shame it infects. An attempt to collect all the memories of violence one body has been exposed to, to understand whether it’s destined for it, or can it birth something different.

Runtime: 2 hours
