I'll Be Your Mirror

Stadsschouwburg, Utrecht 2016

I'll be Your Mirror is a round mirror, hanging from the ceiling in the foyer like a large gong. The mirror is built up of fifteen separate elements which react to noise in the room and move independently, in a slow performance. Shortly before the show in the theatre begins, the segments start trembling and moving faster, while they light up from behind. Visitors see themselves reflected, while the mirror, like theatre itself sometimes, plays with their expectations.
