I wanted to be a swan… but ducks are more real! (2007)

20 minutes performance at EEA07, Beelitz, Germany.
Idea for the performance came from the fairy-tail of Ugly Duckling and the question if it’s really something that kids should have as a goal, to become a swan, as swans are often aggressive and arrogant birds.
At the end the piece started to reach different and even unexpected levels and meanings, someone said she thought it was about abortion.
