Accentuating the felt sense of seeing and being seen.

»Fielding« is a performance guided by the nature of vision. Literally per- forming seeing as a sensory tool for moving in relationship with a physical space and the space between one another. It is shaped by the phenomena of light, sound and people and is heightened by these in the acute and dynamic present.
