The Performance Pavilion was a new addition to the fair that focused on performance art. The 2019 programme was titled small acts and included a series of performances that invited the audience to consider the connection between art and ethics, curated by Wura-Natasha Ogunji
MIRROR MIRROR by Taiwo Aiyedogbon
Taiwo Aiyedogbon’s MIRROR MIRROR is a poetic performance that highlights human connection in the face of perceived difference and individuality. Two performers — joined at the arms by their costume — are dressed in headgear and face coverings that conceal their individuality. Over the course of the one-and-a-half-hour performance, their choreographed movements reference the spiralling structure of a DNA molecule. While their dancing is related, it is also restricted by their costume, such that the piece necessitates great collaboration and endurance for its execution.
