Secret Book


Une performance de Cindy Rehm

Cindy Rehm va habiter l’espace en utilisant les livres secrets de Hélène Cixous et Alexandra Grant, à l’image d’un rituel privé qui explore le transfert entre l’intérieur et l’extérieur du corps par des méditations silencieuses et des gestes symboliques.

Secret Book reflète les thèmes récurrents du livre “Philippines” d’Hélène Cixous, y compris la télépathie, le double, la relation entre le rêve et la vie et l’imagination sans limites de l’enfance.

Secret Book, a new performance by Cindy Rehm, reflects reoccurring themes drawn from Hélène Cixous’ Philippines, including telepathy, doubling, and the relationship between dream-life and the limitless imagination of childhood.  Within the performance, books appear as magical objects that serve as pathways for telepathic communication between the author and reader.  Rehm will transverse the space using the professed secret books of Hélène Cixous and Alexandra Grant, as she enacts a private ritual that explores transference between the interior and exterior body through quiet meditations and symbolic gestures.
