The windows look like shop displays or a little floating stage. There are two rooms that seem like one. For entering them, two little doors are there that become part of the walls once closed. The windows are the gaps between the theatre and the street. They begin half a meter higher than the sidewalk and end half a meter higher than an average person
‘The body as a grid’, ‘The body as an image’, ‘the labour of construction and deconstruction of an image’, ‘expressing gentleness within the city’, ‘hiding and exposing’ ‘a quiet propaganda’

A video installation containing 3 simultaneous screens that produce a singular space. With simple actions of construction and deconstruction, such as a natural phenomena, the action carried out by the figures creates technology within themselves, through the technology of the medium. The loop is infinite and changes gradually in each round.
The project began after finding a place of respite which becomes activated by the performative actions in the space, resulting in the transformation of the space into both a studio and a stage.
The duality of technology comes back into being also within the musicality performed in the work and the music layered onto the work.
This place allows textures and forms create a non linear, non verbal relationship which is accurate and intimate.

This experiment began with my wish to find a way to be present in my own body, and at the same time in other person’s body, until we reach a state of disorientation between the two. To create the piece it was important for me to develop qualities of concentration and awareness to bodily sensations while rehearsing, as well as performing. Also, I wanted to have moments of improvisation that authentic sensations could cross and sensed by the audience. I wanted that the spectators would be able to feel their own physical sensations while watching the piece.
