Because I Can is a delicate solo made by Eva Recacha in collaboration with performer Lauren Potter and sound artist Alberto Ruiz Soler, visiting notions of power, memory and growing old, and exploring the theme of value in relation to gender and age.
The piece is a poetic stream of consciousness where memories flow in and out of our grasp, leaving a delicate scent of nostalgia and loss. The audience witnesses the performer revisit various memories, her presence becoming an ode to a quiet yet liberating rebelliousness that turns intimacy into a tower of power.
Eva Recacha has been selected as one of the Twenty23 Aerowaves artists with Because I Can.https://aerowaves.org/news/meet-the-twenty23-artists/ The work will be presented at the Festival Spring Forward 23 in Dublin.
