Evolver is an open-source performance platform, researching awareness of the self through conscious movement of the body. In the work the audience member is invited to participate actively, executing actions written on provided instruction cards. 

Through repetition of movements and an emphasis on concentration, focus, determination, strength and mindfulness, the actions motivate the participant to find a center within.

Operating as an open source platform, Evolver can be performed or organised by anyone.

Choose a set of instructions from this website or mix various sets together. Create an energy field on the floor with tape and invite participants. Secure at least 45 minutes of performance time. This is needed to reach the potential of the actions. The space is a silent area during the performance.
