Porson’s Khashoggi: Andrea Rama + Xeni Alexandrou
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2019
The representation of the human form in a surrealistic environment.
In »Philosophy«, the performer introduces another possible human being who does not exist: his own reflection in the surrounding mirrors. This ‘impossible human‘ attempts to make the repressed individuality re-emerge through the reflection of ourselves in a mirror. Over the course of the solo’s development, the audience becomes the impossible human, confirming that both dancer and the multiple reflections of his body parts, effectively comply with the same definition: human.
