2015, performance by Marijn Brussaard

digital LED, haze, steel, wood, rotating platform, sound


Forever Young, performed at Frascati and Theater aan ‘t Spui, is a homage to contemporary rap culture and lifestyle, in which Brussaard explores the tropes within this subculture through movement, sound and text. Nikki designed and constructed the set on which Brussaard performs for the duration of the work. The set, which consists of an individually controlled rotating platform and a large rotating LED halo, gave Brussaard a God­like status while simultaneously drawing the audience into the space through the increasing saturation of light.
