Manila 40_i

(2015 / performance)

 


Manila 40 is materialized between bodies, objects, text and soundscape. Taking multiple reflections as an operational principle and ambiguity as a means to synthesis, the piece explores ways of proposing perspective, scale and prediction. The body is placed onto enigmatic struggle, seeking grounding through a gravitational language. While exploring certain contradiction between atmosphere and facticity, the piece is an invitation towards questioning the role of all elements by embracing dialogue.
