In Nadia, est-ce que ça va?, four performers make a foray into the world of competitive gymnastics and plunge into a ritual, a display of strength, an insatiable quest for flawless movement. In the era of denunciations of abuse, this ode to sports questions our collective blindness to power relations in performance contexts.  

Tess Martens’ performance art, Slow Change, serves as a self-portrait from childhood through adulthood and is particularly focused on periods marked by mental health issues and illness. She uses a slapstick strategy as she attempts to put on synchronized swimming costumes from her youth and re-enact her former routines.
