The Prince
2018-present
character/performance
The Prince returns to public life! Full of ill-conceived notions, bad timing and exuberant gestures, The Prince mimes his way through life as best he can with a portable radio providing the soundtrack. The Prince is a silent film actor and slapstick comedian without sound.

This is a durational piece, designed to take up public space, or to meander alongside and in-between other artwork and among visitors. Vital for the part of The Prince is the costume consisting of a jacket from a theatre production and a stick-on mustache. The performance is improvised using the site and materials present there as prompts for sketches.

In its silliness, frequent failures and dead time, this performance is a continuation of an ongoing performance practice that takes technique as its field of exploration.

durational performance
On the occasion of the Wassaic Project’s Summer Festival 2019, The Prince was invited to run around acting the fool. Throughout the day, he moved between the outdoor spaces and the galleries inside the mill, interacting with artwork and visitors in the summer exhibition Ad Astra Per Aspera.
