“Do you know we are ruled by T.V.?”
At an unspecified time and place, a woman sleeps on top of a television. ”Innocent” and unsuspecting at whatever age she is, TV for her is her bed, her sleeping pill and the substitute of life. The dream of her higher self passes trapped through the TV screen. What is her specified route? And what will happen when an alternate consciousness “arrives” unpredictably into her gray everyday zone?
Now that the collapse of values, systems and hallucinations is obvious, the arrival of a different consciousness oriented in uniting and not fragmenting, is a challenge. Our fall could be also our awakening. Next step? Still unknown.
A work in progress, which is presented again with a new look, having as main subject the control and the fragmentation of the individual through the media, a seasonable situation that has a pessimistic future anticipation. The keystone was the dance video art “antanaclasis”, it continued as a live performance at the Thessaloniki Performance Festival, a parallel program of Biennale 3(2011), and ended up as a complete story in the dance performance “meta”, presented in Athens (ReMap Festival and Athens Videodance Project, 2011) and Patras (Lithographion, 2012).
