Rose Akras NL/BR - Movement with a rest product: space 2

Movement with a rest product: space 2 attempts to make physical action concrete, transforming movement into matter. This is an attempt to make visible the fact that every time we move, we are redefining space. Quoting Roger Callois from his text Mimicry and Legendary Psychasthenia: β€œ ...there can be no doubt that the perception of space is a complex phenomenon: space is indissolubly perceived and represented.” β€œIt is with represented space that the drama becomes specific, since the living creature, the organism, is no longer the origin of the coordinates, but one point among others; it is dispossessed of its privilege and literally no longer knows where to place itself.” Concept: Rose Akras. Performance: Rose Akras, Rob Visser and Sayaka Akitsu.
