Choreography and performance: Yaron Shamir
Duration: 13 min.
Trapped in the moment, cut off from the world, I search for the words that will allow me to get closer to fantasy through reality.
Moving like a blind clown on a thin grey line between hallucination and reality, I dive into a process of transcending the world of consciousness into infinity, knowing that if I build bridges, the madness will begin when these two opposite worlds meet.
The urge for perfection within this process is spattered with compromise.
Watching the others and myself.
Realizing that I am trying to name my fears.
What remains is to take responsibility for the consequences of what is left in the end.
