MATCH represents what seems to be unrepresentable. Performers are consigned to things one cannot fully assume. Sometimes the task is to perform the inanimate object that neither acts nor speaks, but only is. Sometimes it is to act out the thing that is ungraspable in its abstraction or its monstrous implications.


With its hesitations and repetitions, its interruptions and resumptions and its explicit admission, MATCH’s process of creation bears witness to the obscurity of standing for other things.
