LAND’S END – 2011
[comparisons with existing persons are not only coincidental but irrelevant]

A site-specific performance about a country’s borders. Seven
installations form the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of part two, a confrontation between lawyers, investigators and culprits
involved in a murder case.

Land’s End revolves around an assassination in a small Belgian community, with people from both inside and outside the country’s borders involved. After a few months the investigators gather enough contradictory statements to catch the culprits. The run-up to the trial is fraught with instances of differing international legal procedures.  Where one border can be crossed in a fit of insanity, another is closed hermetically.

In Land's End all parties involved in this murder case find themselves reunited years later. The audience penetrates both the crime scene and the interview room at a location yet to be announced.
