eine Performance von Christine Bonansea
FLOATERS ist eine Trilogie für sieben Tänzer, welche die Themen Identität und Entfremdung des menschlichen Seins aufgreift und die subjektive Wahrnehmung der Realität darstellt. Vorausgegangen ist dieser Umsetzung eine Recherche über die geistigen Mechanismen der Projektion als ein bedeutendes Instrument der Empathie und der Identifikation. Die Choreographie macht die Komplexität unseres Bewusstseins anhand der Struktur der Performance sichtbar. Es geht um ein Phänomen, bei dem sich die Grenzen zwischen dem Selbst und dem Anderen, dem Inneren und dem Äußeren auflösen. Es finden Verschmelzungen und Verwechslungen statt - zwischen dem Subjekt, den Anderen und jedem weiteren Objekt im Raum. Es wird eine paradoxe und rigorose Struktur erschaffen, in welcher sich das Wesen fortwährend verliert, während es versucht, eine neue, in sich geschlossene und bedeutsame Wirklichkeit zu entwickeln, in der es überleben kann. Die Dramaturgie bewegt sich dabei konstant von einem energetischen Bild zum nächsten. Sie bezieht sich auf eine unverlässliche Folge von Ereignissen, welche das Publikum in das Stück integrieren und die sich entwickelnde Realität ständig neu definieren soll. Die drei in einander verwobenen Teile der Performance verstärken die verwirrende Ungewissheit der Wahrnehmung und ihre fortlaufende Unbeständigkeit.

FLOATERS is a trilogy that articulates the subjective perception of the reality, referring to the thematic of identity and alienation of human being. The work explores the mental mechanism of projection that is an essential mechanism of empathy and identification.
The choreography reveals the complexity of our consciousness through the structure of the piece, the phenomenon in which there is a loosening of boundaries between self and non-self, inner and outer, and a fusion or confusion with the others as well as with any object in the space. I create a paradox rigorous structure where the being will be incessantly lost trying to generate a new reality in order to survive and create a contained referral world.
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” – Albert Einstein
“Everything you see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe you perceive is specific to you.” – Douglas Adams

This project explores archetypes of the Soul; specifically the four major patterns: The Child, The Victim, The Prostitute and the Saboteur; and the concepts of individuation and integration, between them. The project is grounded in the theory that we traverse a series of experiences and create characters, personas, tendencies that we repeat and recreate without being conscious. What if one of us wakes up and sees the game board and all players? Would that awakening bring the individual home and all of the parts into one? Would the lessons, skills, experiences be learned, integrated and the density released? I have conceived of this piece as a playground with many people playing different roles and creating scenarios that anyone could relate to journeys – some overlap, some written into the future, others dark and light hands clutching a silver thread woven into a tapestry of tears. Beyond state there is a consciousness that tills that soil. Each collaboration is a specific process of self- inquiry and conversation. (plus a lot of grace.)
