Inkonst / Malmö
A techno performance about the moment of change
Peek into the void of the unknown. What do you see? You know that the possibility of a new understanding, a new way of looking and thinking, is appearing through questioning and inventing a new language.

In her brand new performance that has its world premiere at Inkonst, german director Miriam Horwitz is on the hunt for the moment when we experience something that makes us completely change our perception of the world and the reality. This moment is called “metanoia” – the experience of a psychotic breakdown and the following positive psychological rebuild or healing.

Together with a dancer and an actor she uses the short-story “ICH” by Arthur Schnitzler as a point of departure. The story is about a man who becomes obsessed with describing everything around him in detail by putting notes on objects. But no note can ever be satisfying enough – the word apple gives the image of a fruit, but all apples look slightly different, smells and tastes slightly different…

Using Schnitzler’s text as a starting point, as well as the theatre and theatrical possibilities in changing characters, interchangable scenes, new realities, new human beings, and new ways of looking at the world she aim to experience identity, the world around us and ourself in different ways. The challange is to change perspective.
