BETELGEZ


A comparison of the explosion of a star with the social explosion.
A collage of short shots of political speeches that sounds more like announcements of explosions… towards big changes in the global map…
Speeches that promised the birth of new conditions,
in which nothing could be like the old ones.
Speeches that  inspired a revolutionary ferment,
which would tear down fundamentally the old order.
Words that had as a  result to a constant vibration of the humanity  at a high  frequency and to scatter faith ,hope ,certainty… but at the same time anger hatred and despair.
A clear opposition to the eternal cosmic time and the ultimate fact of a cosmic explosion. A landslide disaster in our context, while at the same time the most promising rebirth…an end  that generates all these elements that will give one more chance to the phenomenon of life…at least as we know it…

BETELGEZ / KI OMOS KINEITAI
The star Betelgez is expected to explode as supernova. A second sun will rise in the skies of Earth. The brightness of the explosion will be so strong so it will appear in the sky for approximately 15 days.
 An explosion that may have already happened and we have not yet understood it, happening now and we are going learn about it long after or it will occur after millions of years (very close to our never).
We are in an awkward present full of increasing compression, where the boom may not come never, but the method of the fabricated future has broken down irretrievably.
Except of desperation, the inability to forecast in a chaotic system, gives space to a  critical question
Which is the expectation of human life?
Six dancers -acrobats manage a surface that does not have  stable equilibrium.
A collage of political speeches in a live sounds cape is creating gradually where the concepts of oscillation, landing, lifting, personal action appear. An interactive combination and interrelation with the persons and the items appear during the process..
We die many times during a lifetime, the cells are updated, the bodyonce again becomes almost from the beginning, the present of the experience gives birth to new selves, to defend unwittingly, the idea of a stable "I".
And we are immortals. From a material that was made in the beginning of time, penetrates the meaning of the form and will exist until the end of time, if end exists.

BETELGEZ / KI OMOS KINEITAI
Dance, Music, Acrobatics
According of the scenario of the contemporary cosmology, 14 billion years ago the big bang οccurred, the space and time was created, the light that we see, what we cannot see and the forces. The light was frozen, its internal motion was limited and the material appeared.
And this, because of a minimum of non-uniformity in the distribution of it, was started swirling into a lattice of forces and then the stars were created.
And they burned their materials and then scattered them and became and other stars. 
And they burned their materials and then scattered them and became and other stars and from their leftovers created planets.
And they burned their materials….
At the moment of their collapse, the largest of them, created all these rare and precious materials, which are necessary for making ourselves.
We are so precious, so outrageously precious into the meanness of copies.
We are so rare, so outrageously rare into the abundance of possibilities
We are so fragile, so outrageously fragile into the confidence of forecasts.

Which is the expectation of human life?
Through the intensity of dualism ,which defines human life by gift to curse,
into the silent strangulation of violence, which fits the lyricism of new life,
into the sorrow of the end of the dream of abundance and  the greatness of the human construction,
into the terror of the end of the human time,
there is the serenity of the distant gaze.
 We die many times during a lifetime, the cells are updated, the body changes its material, the present of the experience gives birth to new selves, to defend unwittingly, the idea of a stable "I".
And we are immortals. From a material that was made in the beginning of time, penetrates the meaning of form and will exist until the end of time, if end exists.
However, we will learn that the explosion took place centuries later, when that light reaches here, conveying the information.
