How can one know in such darkness?
24h session

Myriam Lefkowitz
28/04/2018 – 29/04/2018

One performer welcomes one person. The person is invited to close her eyes and lie down on a mattress placed on the floor of a theatre stage. Around the mattress, on the floor, one can see several blankets, pillows, different kinds of cloth, stones, and other objects. During the 30 minutes that the experience lasts, the performer will weave a non verbal narrative of space, made of the activation of the present objects and materials which will come in contact (through sound or touch) with the lying body. The person will hardly notice the performer’s presence; nor will she fully recognize his or her gestures, his or her movements. Only the ‘inanimate’ elements in space will be experienced as being animate.
A blurriness seeps into the mind around what one feels, imagine, recall, or think: a strange mixture of sleep and wakefulness where a different regime of images appears.
