Advanced beings of artificial intelligence, based on the silicium, notice intense nuclear activity in our solar system, they land and take with them the last survivor of a nuclear disaster. Life based on carbon has long been disappeared from the universe, so the discovery is extremely precious and unique as the phenomenon of existence in itself. The uncertainty regarding the fate of the creature divides the alien protagonists, creatures of silicium- created in a long past by “humans” of other worlds. What is that terrestrials call love, death, fate? Is it a suicidal insult or a heroic action of self-determination? Does history ends with the creation of copies? Is the duality of human terrestrial life catastrophic? Is the absolute One, God of the prophetic apocalyptic texts, the silicium’s oxides? The ancient ecstatic past and the later calculative future bring their swords together in the arena of one and only question/ decision which may judge the future of the hyper-system!
..... into a far future room of an android’s spacecraft…
3 versions of the same story. With the same essential facts, with the same initial stage image, following a different scenario and a different kinesiological progress, we conclude in three completely different events.
- It’s about a game with the natural flow of time. The continuity of the temporal order, the unbreakable rule of the movement towards the future breaks with the movement towards the back, the flashbacks and the repetition.
Temporal disorder may bring tragicomic consequences in the end..
-Using the traditional tools of circus for the aerial and the acrobatic act on the floor we try to create a universe which disobeys completely the rules of everyday movement. The aerial motion is constant and simultaneous, aiming to impose a reality in which gravity is absent.
The dancers’ movements depend on the tools and the in-between relation with the other bodies. This illusion breaks only in the last part of the performance, in order to give its place to the romanticism drawn by the dual relation of resignation and resistance to the biggest power of inertia, the gravity.
