Lumbering Memories

by Sara de Santis

This project is study of the memory.

The memory is seen not as a tool to preserve experiences and emotions, but as an obstacle to the development of the present. According to Greek mythology the birth of memory (Mynemousine) originates from the primordial sin of the son versus the father.

The memory was born to save from shame.
The shame causes pain, the pain needs to be expiated but there is no catharsis.
The memory stagnates fueling the cracks of darkness, the fall without limits, Erebus sine lux.

In the dark abyss tadalafil cialis from india dwell the shame of primordial memory.
The inability to manage the present is born from this kind of memory, the time becomes cyclical and freezes in a moment.

Individuals are “tied” to the past that makes the present anachronistic.

While the surface is pretending an apparent equilibrium, the Erebus surrenders to a stable-unstability.

Through the work on the skeletal system, i discover a naked body, forced by his bones’ and joint’s rhythm: a body that is not scarred to show its stall.

Performance Alpha

A project involving Emanuel Andel & Antoni Raizhekoff (ThisPlay), Sara de Santis and Alberto Novello.

Another of the interesting collaborations that just happened in Trasformatorio number zero: the dance transforms into light, the tower of Montalbano’s Castle is morphed into a reactive light instrument, the sound flows from two small monitor speakers and the viewer fights within this setup to choose what to look at.

(We were all so mesmerized that there was little footage to be used. It will expand and transform. Thanks for sharing to Emanuel, Sara, Anton and Alberto…)

Un’altra delle collaborazioni interessanti accadute in Trasformatorio #zero: la danza si trasforma in luce, la torre del Castello di Montalbano cambia in uno strumento di luce reattiva, il suono fluisce da due piccoli altoparlanti e lo spettatore combatte all’interno di questa impostazione per scegliere cosa da guardare.

(Eravamo tutti straniti che ci fosse cosi’ poco girato da utilizzare. Si espanderà e trasformera’. Grazie per la condivisione di Emanuel, Sara, Anton e Alberto …)
