Every Saturday my aunt would go to a café, eat a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drink a grappa, and watch people. She'd do so for one hour and then go home. "Hearsay" is a performance about dissociative and mediated relations and the familiar frictions of the everyday. Using the garden as a commonplace it confronts the limits of representation, especially in regard to language and the uncertainties it creates.
