Christine Bonansea Company and Byungseo Yoo

‘Parallel and phase-unlearning the notknowing’(2020) is on-going artistic research project of Christine Bonansea Saulut and Byungseo Yoo on the sound and the body and the time and the space. As a extended presentation of previous research(Parallel and Phase,2019), this piece is adapting the formats from various cliche such as, psychiatric consultations,dance class and television talk show, noise concert to welcome participatory-audiences into the performance. By constant shifts of the format, it creates contradictory situations and happenings to unlearn the notknowing.

- And if a balloon is just a container that contains our breath?
- Is then a piece of ourselves hovering outside our body?
For their new project "desinflar" Jone San Martin and Yannis Adoniou breathe in 50 balloons,
they explore their mechanics as floating vessels that keep their breath alive.
