We, the places
About the performance:
In this kind of experiment, an actress and a photographer got together. With our video performance we want to reflect on -also with you- our role within society, facing a new way of thinking the world.
Can we have a different point of view about things that happen to us in our daily life? There is a normalizing link between the spaces and their people. The disposition of human beings in the spaces we occupy. The places that determine our routine behaviors. How was our life locked up? What will this rhythm be like from now on?
As artists we can be able to handle any kind of tool, thus facing the emptiness that technology tries to impose on us. In this performance we use drone images as a documentary registration instrument and social network´s material requested or appropriating them. Through the scenic performance we will try to express the sensation´s sway during confinement and its subsequent inference. The human being pushed to the limit of his rationality and forced to deal with his innermost limitations.
