_open new doc_The structure is very simple: a screen, spectators, and behind the audience, a projector: someone is writing while you are looking…. In this performance the body disappears. Nobody is on stage. You’re watching a film. The film is a lonesome trip of one person framed as a succession of thoughts and stories that appear on the computer screen. Time, space, and perception unfold freely, making you forget who or where you are. The performance happens somewhere -between the place where the lonely writer is sitting and your own mind, with the projection screen of a computer as a medium: you seem to be inside author’s head, witnessing her existencethroughout the piece. _Maria_ After years of working with images, I wanted to work with the absence of image in order to produce another kind of presence. The absence as a generator of presence, presence of bodies, presence of thoughts, of landscapes… I wanted to provide my audience with a space to stay “in-between“.
