Sammanfattning (abstract):
And Summoning Spirits from the Gut is an ongoing project consisting of series of performances that re-present individual accounts, stories and memories, of public monument in a particular city. Focused on the personal and the subjective the project is aimed at producing stories that in some way arise from or through a monument rather than those that are inscribed into it's plinth or base. Recollections are gathered through interviews with select individuals in a city who are asked to select a monument to which they have a particular opinion, a specific perspective or a personal memory. These stories are then rewritten from a first person perspective as if being recalled by the monument itself. They are presented from an actor who is asked to project her or his voice from the monument in an attempt to present these stories from the site that produced them or in a sense to speak the personal through this public. The actor's costume, character and props are all patterned upon the story that the monument now tells.
