This project has been developed during a Summer Residency Course at the Stockholm University of the Arts (DOCH). Taking the different interpretations of language as the starting point, in “Wortenlust” randomly chosen audience members become part of the performance when playing and interacting with shadows and video effects on the screen.
Do the languages we speak shape the way we think?
The main purpose of Wortenlust is to awake a sense of wonder or an interest for the unknown into the audience. This representation of our “differences” pretend to abolish what human societies have been always locking for: a comfortable state of mind, manipulated by the mass media, where we are used to believe we already know everything just because we saw it on TV or in newspapers.
A 20 minutes performance piece in which the idea of the “other” is not a simply position on a scale of differences with us but an integral part of an existing whole.
