Sadface is a solo performance on the brink of installation. In monolithic setting, 3 key elements with different qualities transform each other at an extremely slow pace. Being offered a minimum of spectacle, the audience is forced to draw its sensation from the slightest movements and changes. The piece challenges perception and questions how and through which channels information is perceived.
