Circle-X Arts, Steiner Graffiti

Review in Issue 17-3 | Autumn 2005

Under the auspices of his company, Circle X Arts, Christopher Markus presents a solo piece that is part autobiographical performance and part performative lecture – an homage to Rudolf Steiner and a reflection on his influence on Markus’ life. It is an inspiring and impassioned performance that is at its best when he is most physically embodied in his exploration of self: marking out movement pathways across the space with fluid ease, words and gestures blending harmoniously, creating circles of salt on the ground or scribbling furiously on the blackboard – reaching the metaphysical through the physical, as both Artaud and Steiner would have it. The performance is less effective when he switches from his own journey to engage in character acting to explain Steiner’s philosophy and the impact it had on those experiencing it first-hand.
