STILL LIVES - ANTWERPEN

For the Still Lives project the good work productions team went out onto the streets of Antwerp. They showed passers-by a photo of Jeff Wall and asked for their comments. Their descriptions are edited into the soundtrack for the Still Lives performance. On the stage the words are interpreted by occasional performers from the most varied of backgrounds, cast in the city itself. Bodies throng the stage and suddenly freeze, as if they have turned into waxwork figures. They reflect the dynamics of urban life. Still Lives becomes a game of standing still and moving, about observation and interpretation.

Still Lives is part of the overall project Good Work.
