This work has its roots in the concept of loss of identity through the transition of time. This passage is made visible to the audience through incisions, signs and images that the performer creates through his movements. The loss of identity that the artist faces shows the need of losing ourselves and finding ourselves back, to be recognized by us and by third parties. These traces are the evident result of a bodily/subjective dialectic, which finds release in the construction of ephemeral figures, created by the passing of the audience. The project is executed through live performance: the image of the dancer is captured by a camera and processed through software which add a deformity to the body in relation to the choreography.
The scenic design is created by the actions of the performer. The image of the dancer and the performance of the audience are elaborated simultaneously on different levels: virtual reality and reality.
