Now we will count to twelve

and we will all keep still

for once on the face of the earth,

let’s not speak in any language;

let’s stop for a second,

and not move our arms so much.

“Keeping Quiet”, Pablo Neruda

 Performance - installation “Resignation” is a durational 4h long work about life’s timely bodily experience where the indissoluble bond between a human and nature is revealed. It invites us together to devote ourselves to the ordinance of movement and time thus creating a space for imagination, where to reconsider the presence and to contemplate the possible sceneries of the future. "Resignation" is artist's personal response to this time, where the desire to retreat and not to participate in the activities, which might generate aggression, is being expressed, instead inviting everybody to fall asleep. The work is a personal protest of silence expressed not only by the author but by the whole creative team.

The performance was nominated for the Latvian Dance Award "Dance Award" in the nomination "Contemporary Dance Event".
