What does freedom mean when all is linked?
When the space is saturated by stories
asking me to follow
or to be enchanted.
Entering into the vortex of the self,
not knowing who or what will remain.
The solo performance “Singularity” is an invitation to meet the unknown in ourselves; to let images, thoughts and states arise, transform and dissolve — not knowing what will remain when we offer ourselves to ourselves.
The imagination space is entangled with the physical space. Contradicting states and statements are allowed to resonate without a need for resolution.
The performance is an opportunity to witness a dancer, an experiencer, a cyber-shaman, an interactive technology researcher, a storyteller, or an old friend — creating a space for making your own sense of what is happening within and around you.
Roosna & Flak deal with questions around the meaning of freedom and interconnectedness; how our perception of reality determines our sense-making and what we consider meaningful.
“Singularity” is a part of Roosna & Flak’s ongoing research into interactive performance ecosystems, where the performer’s movements influence sound, light and video.
