MUOVI/Fabio Liberti (DK)

As if, I have missed myself
| Friday 11 February
At 18:30 – 19:30
Tanssin talo - Dance House Helsinki / Pannu Hall

A piece combining movement, videoart and multi-layered sound inspired by personal experiences of depersonalisation disorder. The diagnosis describes feeling detached from body and thoughts.

The work transcends the pathology to question how our identity is built. Layers are the key dramaturgical and aesthetical element. Skin is peeled from the dancer’s bodies while layers of video amplify their presence. Realistic layers of sound also mirror the audience and the dancers to later relocate and transform them.
The piece brings attention to the social pressure to present ourselves as uniform, predictable, and productive in staged coherence
