In the performance part of “Happy Death” I am demonstrating the transformation and liberation of an individual who is helplessly lost in the craziness of her tirelessly blabbering head. As she accidentally knocks over a bell during her wild ranting, she awakes and realizes her delusions. This is the moment of a happy death for her, as she lets go of her inner voices and wakes up to the spontaneous experience of the undefined fresh moment of being alive.
Happy Death, created and performed at Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna, Austria, 2007
