PING is a costume performance inspired by Samuel Beckett's piece of prose 'Ping' (1966). The performance visualizes the struggle of a person submerged in an unknown and ephemeral world, exploring the relationship between the physical body and out-of-body 'spiritual body'. The spiritual body is ephemeral; it might only exist for the briefest of moments.

Performed and exhibited as part of the Innovative Costume of the 21st Century: The Next Generation Symposium Moscow (17-18/06/19).

The performance took place at the A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum. Images of the work were also exhibited at the State Historical Museum and the A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum.

Inclusion of PING in the symposium was funded by the Creative Industries fund NL and the Embassy of the Netherlands.
