Verb: Slue: to turn or slide violently or uncontrollably

SLue is the pumped up sister of 10 meters of sound, where multiple elastic cables are stretched across a large space suspended above a row of lights, rotating at alternately accelerating and decelerating tempos, painting the air with streaks of coloured light over time. SLue was made in collaboration with Mischa Daams and premiered at “Into The Great Wide Open” festival on Vlieland, where it stretched and writhed amongst trees in the woods.

“SLue is elusive and beautiful, but sometimes frightening and scary because of the setting and the sound. It is a thin line between fascination and the fear that the rope will snap.”
