London, December 2016
Persona is a participatory performance that investigates how our persona is composed by different perceptions that other people have of us. During this, I reflect on how people´s definition of who I am is influenced by their cultural background and personal characteristics.
To create this performance, I asked people from different backgrounds and people related to me through different kinds of relationships to record their perceptions of me in their own language. I collected their responses as voice recordings and I worked with the sound designer to assemble them into a sound piece that later on I used in a live performance.
