‘Still I Know Who I Am’
A visual and auditive Performance Installation

As modern people, how do we think ourselves into the world?
Are our actions based on how we perceive who we are in the world?
Do we perform ourselves into a state of self-understanding – into forming an identity?
Does our reality in itself become a performative enactment of our fictive preconceptions of how our lives should unfold? Do we mirror ourselves in our preconceptions, and do we interact with reality through our states of imagination?

As agents, two female and one male performer are placed into media machines of video and audio installations. They meet copies of themselves and engage in a search for intimacy and touch in a fragmented world, composed of yesterday’s relics and dreams of tomorrow.

The scenic space presents itself as a virtual architecture wherein fictive locations emerge as echoes of the actions of the performers. The spectators, too, finds themselves involved within the reflections of the machinery and become part of the search for sensed and ‘humanly real’ presence in our telematic world.

Reality and virtuality intertwine as the labyrinth of events and speech acts unfolds. What is fact and what is fiction? What comes first and what comes last?
