Endurance

Duration 40′

Calendar

Wednesday 20/10/2010 from 20:00 to 20:40

Following the exploration of the loss, once again, the idea of the fall and the course is exposed, in a hazy zone. For the performance, in a vacuum, two characters confront their technique and purposes. The bodies draw a topography consisting of directions and areas. Two projection surfaces, the background and the foreground to support the image and text. A representation which oscillates between fight and game, before the collapse.
It is someone who can no longer remember what he was thinking. The origin of his ideas has become a reality external to him. The text which reports us that loss scrolls across a screen, in a changeable way. A voice is heard. It attempts to redefine a starting point, an origin, starting from the person himself. From where he is.
