Under The Influence 2018

For 2018, Phil Hayes is planning to create and present three small-scale residency based performance projects in the Südbühne of the Gessnerallee. Each time Phil will be working in residence for three weeks and then showing the work with two performances.
The series of works will reflect on Phil’s history of collaborative creation with regard to the idea of influence. 

Phil will be collaborating with Spanish performance-maker and artist Maria Jerez and with Zurich musician Sarah Palin.
For his third residency, Phil will be returning to solo work, but exploring the idea of influence and encounters and with Nada Gambier acting as artistic advisor.
The three performance projects will lead to the creation of a small reflective book, also titled UNDER THE INFLUENCE.
