A performance by Princess Pea
Princess Pea, the anonymous artist and living sculpture with a not-so-pea-sized head, brings us Rehearsing in Acts, a work based on the idea that the self exists by proxy, concealing a presence that is embryonic, infantile or even
someone who might have been but never got born. Through performance, image, prose and poetry she is consistently in the quest of this self, this unborn presence, perhaps as a proxy. Her characters are actors who instill their lived
lives and personal legends in the character of Princess Pea – a mould that could fit anybody. Using the home as a simile and setting for the heart to play its desires, the various Princess proxies are engaged in collecting time, memory, desire, hope, perseverance and ultimately destiny.
