On Time //// (excerpt) / 2015 / 2 minutes 53 seconds
video of On Time monologue from MIRA FUCHS
commissioned by Runway - Australian Experimental Art
 Made for an audience of 35 in the round,
MIRA FUCHS proposes itself as an abstracted memoir of the Woman's body as a political riddle.
Building a temporary circuit of community,
MIRA FUCHS invites audiences to witness their own witnessing,
bringing to light specialised economies of affect
and dance & performance as labour.
The work is based on the artist's own 8 year experience
of working as a stripper in a Melbourne Gentleman's Club.
MIRA FUCHS is the first piece in the Arch Type trilogy.
It was followed by HIGHNESS (2017) and the forthcoming THIEVES LIKE US (2020)
The three works investigate economies of affect as they relate
to three available archetypes of performing womanhood:
the Whore, the Queen, and, the Hag
