The lightest dark is darker than the darkest light
Work in progress / 30 – 40min
“An engagement with artificial eyes and lights in the darkness.
There are shadows, they support the act of listening.
Letting the invisible pass through the body.
There are non-linear lines, traveling and searching connections.
Finding space to soften intensity.
It is a playful process of merging realities.
It is a place to reveal and shine on the rawness and vulnerability.
A dialogue between internal complexity and external emptiness.
This is an experimentation with a body, artificial lights, ropes, and a camera in a dark space. Shifting perspectives between the process of live performance making and live streaming performance. Practice/research on framing actions and sharing intimacy with a distance, and how to touch and trigger sensorial experience with the viewer from different live realities.”
