Rhizome 2.0 (Returning) // SPILL Festival 2016

In October 2016 I was chosen to be one of five writers who would attend Live Art festival SPILL and respond critically and creatively to the performance works. All of the pieces written by the full cohort of writers can be found on the SPILL website HERE.


Rhizome 2.0, performed by Emily Goddard

THURSDAY 27th
Today I saw:

  • A robotic girl and a tree
  • The confusion of a tree which feels more like grass
  • The dizziness of someone else’s vision
  • Intrusiveness of a day dream
  • A dystopian future
  • A library in your head
  • The bare footed comfort of a processed man-made material
  • The want to lie next to you
  • Somebody who I wondered if they were the future
  • A virtual pixie
  • An outstretched hand towards me which was never meant for me


FRIDAY 28th
Today I saw:

  • A person hiding behind a tree
  • Exactly what she saw
  • The dizziness of returning to reality
  • The uncertainty of a day dream
  • The light ahead of me which I wanted to walk towards
  • The comfort of my own thoughts
  • Why she is moving so slowly
  • How pixilated the delicate vine of a leaf could be
  • A tree growing diagonally
  • The shadow of a person left behind in nature
  • An artificial mouse nestled in the hay and leaves
  • The heaviness of the sight and understood the lolling of her head
  • A wishful thinker


SATURDAY 29th
Today I saw:

  • An entirely different environment
  • The re-adjustment of a new sanctuary
  • It for the first time as she did
  • What she has probably seen many times before
  • The safety of a wooden den
  • A miniature human
  • The sun attempting to break through
