Here we are the lights are on and it is raining

Here we are the lights are on and it is raining

In Here we are the lights are on and it is raining (2013) a video is played on the screen throughout the performance. The performance is for two people at a time, who will listen to the voiceover of a woman’s continuous speaking. All objects in the room are soaked in water, dripping wet, while the body of the performer lays motionless on a mattress in the middle of the room. Departing from the idea of stagnation the narration of Here we are the lights are on and it is raining passes people in a state of being transfixed, frozen, resistant, still, and about to give up.
