SELF-CONVERSION

The performance is grounded on two contradictions: the reality of tradition and continuity that are rooted in sounds, live voices, in the continuous realisation of traditions and actions belonging to the archetypes, permanent codes, self-sufficiency and an artificial virtual world. The projected film shows in rotation a cold dead landscape of a space abyss. It is contrasted to group of young people sitting in front of the screen and deeply concentrated on the rehearsal. We can hear their voices, breath, observe a natural process mixed up with the sounds of a vacuum cleaners, some artificial noise and wind blows. The world in antinomy, as a collision of two independent systems.
