SYNOPSIS

Quintessence  is an audio-visual performance that combines the intermedia practice of Boštjan Čadež and the performative body of Tatiana Kocmur. The performer's body is covered with LED lights that respond to her movement. The movement of the body with the help of sensors generates image and sound. A series of movements make up an animated image supported by a video projection.


Quintessence discusses possible ways to embody in a world of technological progress. It offers reflections on modern human, his placement in space and his relationship toward other things. At the forefront of our performance we place the cyborg - a cybernetic organism that is a hybrid of machine and organism, a creature of social reality and imagination. The created lively dialogue between the body / self (of both artists), technology (dress with LED lights) and surroundings (projection, space and spectators) represent a field of transformation and merging of dualisms mind - body, woman - man, human - machine.


The performance was premiered at the 14th Lighting Guerrilla festival (at Trg francoske republike) and repeated at AKC Metelkova City, at the Museum Summer Night (outside of MSUM), Novo mesto Soareja: A few days in September 1920-2020 (Anton Podbevšek Theater) and the Is it working? festival (Circulation 2).
