As Far as My Fingertips Take Me

National Premiere

Our fingerprints identify us and are used, in Europe today, by the authorities to track many of us.The day of a refugee can be defined by the tips of his or her fingers, given that the Dublin Regulation created a database of fingerprints for all of Europe for refugees and migrants. In As Far as My Fingertips Take Me, there is a meeting between the public and a performer which takes place through a wall. They don’t see each other, but their arms touch each other. The performer draws on each person’s arm, while at the same time, we can hear the voices of those who have recently defied discrimitation at the border.
