It’s all about weight.
It’s all about wait.

Stemming from research into the subject of landmines and conversations with landmine survivors and deminers on a recent journey through Cambodia (one of the world’s most heavily mined countries), Pink Mist takes its time. Gradual creeping time. The kind of time it would take to slowly demine a strip of land one metre wide and ten metres long, crouched down, piercing the ground with a pointed metal probe at an angle of thirty degrees to a minimum depth of fifteen centimetres, when you can only move forward in maximum increments of three centimetres at a time.

In collaboration with sound artist Zoe Irvine and under the mentorship of Richard Layzell and Mish Weaver, this new work-in-progress from Claire Cunningham creates an environment that pulls our gaze to the ground and looks at the voids these objects leave– in time, in bodies, in the land and in our own certainty.

Pink Mist: an unofficial military term used to refer to the state a person ‘becomes’ after triggering a landmine or other unexploded ordinance…

“feisty, innovative, radical and witty … this is strong visionary work”

About the Auteurs Project

The Auteurs Project, a collaboration between the Arches and the National Theatre of Scotland, has seen 5 Scottish theatre makers – Rob Drummond, Gary McNair, Kieran Hurley, Nic Green and Claire Cunningham – embark on a two year development programme, including international research residencies, writing and thinking retreats, performance training, creative exchanges with other practitioners, placements and mentorships. The resulting works-in-progress are being performed for the first time as part of BEHAVIOUR. More info.
