Drama project led by Adva Zakai with drama and multimedia design students.
How will I keep performing while I don’t have a body anymore?
Frankly, we never tried to find an answer to this question, but a mental trip to a possible bodiless future brought us to reflect on our relationship with our present bodies, as long as we still got them.
Before it all started we were 10. Now we are 20. 10 of us are people, the other 10 are bodies. Some of us moved to live in the future, some stayed in the present. A few of us are made of wood, metal or plastic, some are made of signs and letters, others are flesh and blood. Since a month, we gather every day in a timeless black box, where we play, love, eat and argue. People interrogate bodies, bodies flirt with objects, objects striptease for people, future skypes with present and words fly around, attempting to give sense to all that.
We open the door to our timeless black box, where we would like to host you and present our findings. It would be a pleasure to have you and your body there.
