Holly Herndon’s brilliant set at La Gaîté Lyrique opened with a background of a TextEdit document which read “Every time is like the first time, Matthieu”, before moving to Mat Dryhurst visuals. Through writing on his laptop and projecting the text onto the moving background, the trio – Herndon, Dryhurst and Colin Self – communicated with the crowd: a dedication to Chelsea Manning; a request for compassion.
Colin Self is very good at dancing.
