In HEAD_SPACE Tegan attempts to trace the internal conversations of the body and the mind in turmoil. It is a mapping of patterns, pressures and struggles, a performative cartography of self and belonging that works with live music.
Sometimes it is alright
to simply sit
And pace the corridors
of your eyelids,
With your fingertips
Across your chest.
Perhaps chaos is a season.
A closed room
– Hannah Lax (2022)
