LA CAMERA ASTRATTA / THE ABSTRACT ROOM
Kassel (Germania), Salzmannfabrik, Documenta 8, 1987
- Data Sheet
The abstract room is a mental space. It is the interior of the everyman who, for a moment of suspended time, is overcome by sensations, obsessions, memories and images.
In this timeless room, the actors interpret the idea of conscience and play out imaginary or experienced relationships that are exaggerated or distorted. Whilst they perform on stage, the monitors continually create a space that is beyond, amplified, where everything multiplies. The music sets the rhythm, establishing the tempo and the breath of the universal and undetermined body, the focal point of this performance.
