Can you tell what is going on in someone’s mind when he/she is executing a contemporary choreography?
This live performative installation draws attention to the cognitive experience of moving and invites the audience to enter the internal dimension of the dancer by simulating the streams of consciousness related to learning and performing in an optimal or negative mental state.

 

Instructions
- Choose a condition:

a) early stages of the learning process

b) subjective optimal performance
c) negative state of mind
