Heaven (Affective Recursive) 2007

Heaven (Affective Recursive) is a performance research from inside the performance, by the performers, in real time. It starts from an inversion of performance specific corporeality – instead of choreographing their bodies or making them express something, performers focus on their body sensibility, discussing how this affects what they feel, perceive, think and do. Through their induced sensitivity they investigate in real time the situation in which they are – in front of an audience, in a performance. The work includes its own real time reflection upon the work, which becomes the work, that is then again reflected upon. This self-referentiality produces a paradoxical loop that can change the affective atmosphere, leading sometimes to a high state (therefore the name of the project).
