If our inner selves are hidden, contained within a body of thought and held breath. If who we are internally is not always a true representation of the self we choose to present to the world. If our minds and bodies experience thoughts and emotions that often wage war with each other. What is real and what is imagined? How do we break free from the shackles of our own mind and body? The Performance HEAD_SPACE of the artist Tegan Peacock traces the internal conversations of the body and the mind in turmoil through film, sound and movement. It is a mapping of patterns, pressures and struggles, a performative cartography of self with electroacoustic music performance by Wayne Reddiar, design by Hannah Lax and performance by Tegan Peacock.
HEAD_SPACE is part of the project SERIES X of the choreographer Boyzie Cekwana. SERIES X invites three African artists: Tegan Peacock, SoKo and Adam Chienjo. The intent is to support their strategies for engaging with the contexts in which they find themselves.
‘Sometimes it is alright
to simply sit
And pace the corridors
of your eyelids,
With your fingers
Across your chest.
Perhaps chaos is a season.

Through the company’s collaborative design, she has worked with artists from different artistic genres, creating works that have been presented at festivals, both nationally and internationally. As an independent artist, Tegan Peacock has participated in programmes that have allowed her to work and learn from diverse artists including: Boyzie Cekwana, Desire Davids and Faustin Linyekula. In 2019, Tegan Peacock conceptualized and actualized the first ReRouting Arts Festival. The festival is site-specific in nature and presents multi-disciplinary content in diverse public spaces. Pietermaritzburg becomes a playground for its artists and community. Addressing accessibility to spaces and the arts the festival aims to give artists a platform to engage with the local community while building bridges between different cultures.
