mindmachinemakingmyths / New-Territories / [eIf/bʌt/c] / Francois Roche & Camille Lacadee – with Carsten Holler for Donau Festival 2013
It’s about the choreography of several dancers, several mind-machines, disarticulated and in disequilibrium, petrified in four different positions, spraying some cloudy substances, top down very dense foggy matter, disseminating a random cocktail of physiological altered states (euphoria, melancholia, hysteria, phobia, phyllia, joy, delusion, delirium, anxiety, amnesia…) to disrupt the perception, for a drift in a synesthesia multiple and heterogeneous sensations.
The physio-zones are an initial preparation, a shamanism ceremony to reach a point of emotional delivery. It’s engaging an emphasis of the acephalous body, released from its rational jail and limits, by rationalities, as a strategy to reach a line of subjectivity escaping, crossing real and unreal, logic and illogical, through the viscera, the arterial, and the headless desirable machinery of the human body.
The cloud is using chemistry synthesis of human Pheromones ANDROSTA-4,16-DIEN-3-ONE (A5) + ESTETRAENOL (E1)
