– eine audiovisuelle site-specific Performance –
in the background
protruding from the earth
two pairs of eyes
that see nothing
in the twilight
on one place
In a cool, gloomy room, a wall glows. Industrial sounds set the air vibrating. Silhouette(s) emerge(s) from a shaft in the floor. A foot, hands and finally (two) heads, including the corresponding body(ies).
A game of identity(s) begins. The (two) bodies move in unison, mirror each other, take a seat (on the edge of the pool) and plunge headlong back into the (imagined) water as if in slow motion.
Finally the umbilical cord breaks. Suddenly (individual)?
