Frequency is an interactive experience where performing artists combine aerial arts, spoken word, and reflective processes to explore letting go, and felt sense. Within a playful setting, the audience is invited to attune to their present moment experience without resistance or judgment, and a willingness to be curious. “We have the opportunity to choose whether we want to hang on or let go of emotional upsets. Are we willing to accept the feelings? Will we choose to be healed or will we become one of the walking wounded?” ~ David R. Hawkins M.D, Ph.D

The Russian writer Sergei Dovlatov once said: “We endlessly curse Comrade Stalin, and, of course, for the cause. And yet, I want to ask—who wrote the four million denunciations?” This immersive performance created by Dasha Ziborova and Juliette Hermant invites the audience to participate in the sinister process of creating “denunciative drawings.” Commencing at Maison Bergogne with a perfomance, then threaded throughout the day and town, look out for these agents and provocateurs, they will surely be watching you.
