Envy

Envy
 
Envy is one of the most degrading and vicious feelings. Among the Cardinal Sins in religion, it is the only one that doesn’t reward with any sort of pleasure. Being culturally a shameful emotion, Envy grows and eats you silently from the inside. This piece tries to explore these internal affects; the heartbeat of the performer is amplified in real time, mimicking or recalling the moment when envy arises in a person. The violin fluctuates among the obscure feelings caused by envy, and the aim to ignore them.
