Above and Beyond / 2018 – 2019

Inspired by surrealism, 60s sci-fi cinema and hipster culture of the last two decades, two enigmatic characters habitate the stage: a scientist and the subject of experimentation, which is neither a human nor a digital/mechanic/virtual being. Using elements from contemporary dance-theatre, performance-art and a home-made electronic machine, the tension between the two characters and the machine is posing questions about our dependency on technology and the characteristics of a human being now a days.

Premiered: 4th-6th January 2018, National Theater of the Faroe Islands. The piece was performed again at the Habait Theater in Tel Aviv January 2019.
