from here to there
A 20 minutes live installation for body, words, sound and video. The piece is divided in four subsequent chapters The Name; The Continent; The Journey; The Home, which focus from different angles on the mythology around migration from Fortress Europe. Images filmed in Eritrea are geometrically manipulated to establish a relationship with my body of white European performer, which is gradually revealed by the video, almost as a visual bildungsroman. The body functions as a vanishing point of the two axes of the personal and of public which compose the experience of the journey whether it be of personal growth or of migration. The work begins from afar with images and words that are clearly not of this continent and gradually tries to make the two worlds of migrants and audiences convergence in the experience of social control and of imagery of the other.
