THE DREAM IS THE DREAMER

A spatial evocation exercise for stage were a fictional topography is activated establishing a collective imaginary, through means of word and gesture.

The construction of the sensitive experience of the body has as a starting point the exercise of contemplation. An empty space is intercepted by an hypnagogic protocol where a trigger point, the performer, morphs within as a multiple entity.

Through the manipulation of an object, affects are built and scenic time is defined, establishing a relation between the monstrous and the human dimensions of a body-flesh-skin.

This scenic time-zone is driven by speculations on reality.
