Circus City: Stick Man – By Squarehead Productions
‘Stickman’ is a performance which features a man, a stick, and a T.V.
The man balances the stick on various parts of his body, thereby setting himself and the stick in motion. If the man has an agenda, he keeps it to himself. The stick gets moved around and balanced by the man seeming to not have much to say.
The T.V. lurks in the background and throughout the performance puts titles on whatever the man and the stick are doing; thus attempting to dictate what the audience see. All the while the audience watches and tries to keep up with the ever changing rules of play. The T.V. titles them ‘WATCHERS’.
‘Stickman’ is an exploration of our relationships with meaning, empathy and agency.
