Highlights of the performances

As part of Performance as Process we invited audiences to explore the Delfina Foundation house and witness a presentation of performances from international resident artists Alex Mirutziu, Stephen Kwok, Luísa Nóbrega, and Syowia Kyambi. The theme of translation was central to the work presented at Transpositions.


Stephen Kwok presented a new work Stephen, developed during his residency, which used an interactive synthesiser and orange lighting to induce nervousness. Stephen also presented a number of videos from his Recreational Meeting series.
