Hanna Pajala-Assefa (FI): Showing

A well-lit apartment with an energy that runs through the building, with a good frame, in a dream location. Good layout, great view and full of nice little details. In good shape, with carefully detailed surfaces. Frame condition checked -05. A unique custom-made property.

The Showing is a site-specific dance performance made for a private house. The piece operates around the playful suggestion that the house is up for sale; we, are invited inside by an estate-agent who is keen to sell the house to us. However the estate-agent’s delivery quickly moves from the impersonal to the personal and begins to reveal more about herself than the family home in which we stand. Partly-improvised, with flashes of humour and warmth The Showing is a solo-performance dealing with ideas of femininity, fragility, strength and the everyday.
