Crochet, Gym and Tonic 2011

Crochet, Gym and Tonic was a physical dialogue between a visual and performing artist in collaboration dancer Léan Coetzer.
The performance spontaneously repeated every 30 minutes, 21 times over the course of a day. Grobler crocheted a piece from bra elastics whilst Coetzer experimented with small movements whilst strapped into the “vibromatic”. Coetzer took her hip measurements before every performance and lost 7 cm overall. Both participants experienced a distortion of space as a result of the repetition and monochrome colour.
The performance formed the starting point for the White Termite Installation as the male participants in White Termite, continued the crocheting process to the beat of the same song.
