‘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.’
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.
