In this work, the audience activated the performers by reading cards with instructions written on them.
All cards with instructions were based on reaching a higher state of awareness of the self through continuous movement of the body.
While the audience had the option to choose an action, the performers were the ones who decided the duration and intensity of each action performed in synchronization.
Spread over a course of five days, island was performed for a total of twenty-four hours in July 2017 at the Academie Minerva graduation show, and was awarded with the Klaas Dijkstra Academieprijs.
