Collective Sensations (praticable)

photo Yves Mettler

In this group piece, imagination and sensation are nearly one and the same. Through movement and speech, sensations become collective as the five performers transform their bodies and change their states, sharing their imagination of becoming animals, wearing exquisite outfits or experiencing intense pleasures. The performers’ voices travel through the room and describe these fantasies while lights transform the open, natural space into an artificial environment.
