Whatever You Want is an exploration of authority and how it manifests in the body when it is willingly stripped from an individual. Through a series of pre-generated commands along with those elicited by a live and digital audience, Escarciga will experiment with modes of giving and taking power as the performance plays out in real time, manipulating his body in response to lived circumstances. Informed by a background in Butoh and survival mechanisms as a queer person living with mental illness, Whatever You Want is a glimpse into the daily life of those living on the fringe.
"I really want to work with NHS nurses and staff because for me they are the most disciplined, resilient, hard-working people. These are the qualities one must have to execute my work." - Mehmet Sander
In a 2014 workshop at the Tate Modern 3 nurses from the NHS joined choreographer and action-architect Mehmet Sander, inspiring him to honour the NHS and it's hardworking staff in this new piece, that will be developed in collaboration with participants from the NHS and mental health sector in a 2-day workshop and performed to open to the TF18 festival.
