45 minute performance, 2018-2019

A performance with singing, food and participation by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau with Daniel Oliver.

The audience are overwhelmed by bad feelings: of shame, anger, envy and disgust. The audience wants to feel clean again. With the help of their hosts/workshop leaders, Daniel Oliver and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, they are guided through various cleansing rituals to rid them of their bad, unhelpful feelings. 

Matthew and Daniel tell stories, ask questions, get naked, sing songs, and remove all impurities from their cultural diet through a #cleaneating ritual involving Tangy Cheese Doritos and non-dairy milk alternatives. 

Resentment explores the personal and political resonance of bad feelings in public discourse, including reactionary whiteness, liberal prejudice and the violent undertones of neutral positions.

First performed at Lafayette Foundation, Paris, 2018
