FLOATERS is a laboratory that explores the senses, an environment for questions and emotions. I create kinetic events that displace and manipulate the perceptions of the audience. Confined in the center of an unstable space, and surrounded by performers and other spectators, the audience members become actors themselves. They witness the subjective perception of the reality. The piece inquires about the thematic of identity and alienation of human beings. The intricacy of the structure emphasizes the uncertainty of individual identities and their reality in the physical space.
