PAF – Performance with Virginia

Quick posting between cities.. I had a week off from filming the ‘Affenkönig’ in the Provence and took the train north to PAF (Performance Art Forum) in St. Erme, North France. A beautiful train ride through the country :)

I heard many good things about this place and for a while wanted to spend time in a sort of hippy artistic place, focussing on performance research and easy community living. PAF is more than that!
Almost by chance I met Virginia Barratt, a so dear friend of mine, and writer from Australia.
We hadn’t seen for a while, and when I arrived she sat in the garden of the old women’s monastery, as if waiting for me ;)
Spontaneously we wanted to do something something.. Throwing together ideas around ballet, rope and text,
(she currently writes her PhD on ‘PANIC’ – wow & wuff). On my last day we showed what we had in an old chapel.
