‘I find unpredictable beauty in non-intention. Before reaching it, I go through the complex diversity within me. I search for a place away from individuality yet very near that entity. Gone is the basis for comparison and judgment. It just IS. Simply and gently.’

Short Essay on Nothingness does not aspire to being a definite performance piece. It is a study on the practice of being on stage, the presence of the moment and performing from a highly receptive place. Iris Heitzinger invites her audience to see the performer exposed without any intention, working only with what is there at that moment, observing herself and opening the process to the viewer.

Idea, creation and performance: Iris Heitzinger. A production of Miss Luiss Twisted 2011. Premiered at the festival IMPULS [D], Teatre SAT! Sant Andreu, Barcelona.
