Dance

Mirrored, me?

Dates
Friday 4 November 2016 - Saturday 5 November 2016

A story of the self and its double, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s play William Wilson, is told in this dance performance. It is a game in which different parts of human personality affect and direct the protagonists in the struggle of the self to recognise its diverse sides. During the act, two individuals play with their reflections, bridging the gap between the face and its reflection, between light and shade, between the one who is watching and the one who is being watched. The immersive installation is used as an architectural metaphor, highlighting the very elements of space, suggesting that the boundaries and lines we draw within ourselves about who we are and what we can do are a perception of the mind and a result of a reflection.

There will be a post-show discussion following the performance on Friday 4th November.
