The description below is of my proposed performance – not this video.
“In my performance my character is faced with the news that “The end of the World” is coming. At the beginning I will be sitting in one of the poles, with my back to the audience. I will be looking at the news (on a screen), where they tell that the World is coming to an end. Music comes on, and I will face the audience, showing clear signs of chok. From here the first half of my performance will be my character in a state of panic and apathy, not knowning what to do with herself. This will be shown fx by movements that are fast, with sudden freez with different poses.
This state of mind shifts after a “fall” from one of the poles; there is no way of avoiding the catastrophe anyway. She goes from fear and panic to acceptance and with that calmness and carelessness. One of the ways this is shown is by slower and more fluid movements and tricks.
At the end of the performance, while I sit on the floor, facing the audience, the music will suddenly stop. I will look up, clearly indicating that something is happening, and slowly turn around to face the screen again. And explosion will come on, and I will fall backwards, again facing the audience – now dead in the apocalypse.
