Something In This Universe

‘After Murphy’s OCD performance you’ll want to drop down on your knees to feel the satisfaction of scrubbing the floor.

That’s how empathic her performance was.’

★★★★ Theatrekrant

Nominated for the ZKB Patronage Prize and the ZKB Audience Prize

Something In This Universe (2018) is a solo performance by Genevieve, questioning whether there is such a thing as isolation when comforted by an infinite desire for perfection.
Inspired by the ‘tipping point’ between control and destruction we view a person captured between the seduction and obsession of a compulsive disorder.
