A land where no dragons hide – and I want bright shivering lights in it
A small intimate performance at the foot of a bed. A delight in the senses, spaceship and bluetooth. A quantum navigation. An invitation to intimacy, to sensuality, to the hidden worlds that lie beneath the conscious, to the unconscious, the dreams, only accessible if listening closely. A risk, bringing the public to a private body, equally, proposing other subjective forms of “acting together in concert”. A production of the self. A non-identitarian self that becomes public, an-other, foreign.
This performance is the start of a new gap for materialising vibration, materialising the underworld, the unseen. Gaps are spaces in between spaces, waiting rooms, spaces that forms the formless, spaces for a latent occupation, occupation for fiction, dreams to be fulfilled, opening us up to the inside, which is nothing more than the outside.
SARA GEBRAN (Vz/Dk) has a BA/MA in Urban planning at University Simón Bolivar Venezuela (1982-87), dance studies at Instituto Superior de Danza Caracas (1989-92) and Post-Studies in The History of Images and its Representation at The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm (2012-13). Her works are situated within performance art, exploring medias as video, sound, text, digital works, and finding sustainable ways to produce and create art works that generates genuine autonomy and collaboration.
