My Journey – St. Pancras
(performance for two dancers, lights, performer and massage seat)
by Steven Warwick
Under the guise of the Roman saint Pancras, Warwick (along with two dancers) will deliver an epic poem describing his inner journey, contrasting diaristic dream sequence flashes of exterior poetics. Arrivals and departures; interactions and solipsism; one’s journey is a popular tool both in medieval literature, the 19th century Bildungsroman and also the mediated self of bodybuilders of Instagram and reality TV shows. Set in the underground depths of a tunnel in the tube station, My Journey – St Pancras will be soundtracked by a custom light show, a public yoga massage as found in airports or train stations and a musical soundtrack.
