Intimate performance exploring privacy and space

At The Spot Where I Find Myself gives an intimate glimpse into the world of performer Genevieve Murphy. She plays an indecisive woman who slowly becomes aware of her own body and the space around her. A collection of memories, identities and projections creates a connection with the audience. Especially for the Muziekgebouw, Genevieve adds to her performance an incredible live band made up of renowned musicians Andy Moor, John Dikeman, Laura Polence and Henning Luther. Together they create a unique experience, bringing together spoken word, visual art, rock, free improvisation and electronic music.

Genevieve challenges the audience to explore their own safe spaces, the places where you can express your emotions, find protection and disappear for a while. Uncomfortable, unsettling, introverted, delicate and humorous at the same time. 

Genevieve Murphy: 'As a soloist, I perform the story of my piece. To hold an instrument myself proved disruptive to the intense physical journey I undertake in the work. My music now comes to life with musicians who are very physical performers and have a unique sound. They respond to my voice and character. This feeds my imagination and hopefully that of the audience. It feels great to share the power of live music in a venue like Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ!'
