INSIDER: Unwrapping reality / opening

An introduction to the performance INSIDER of the international creators’ collective led by Cristina Maldonado.

Performance for one audience member that navigates between virtual and physical realities.

In our daily life, technology enables us to exist simultaneously in multiple places. We are immersed in continuous negotiation with things, processes, and people that are not physically present. We commonly identify them as “virtual presence”, a sort of representation of an original that exists somewhere else. We place this “copy” at a lower level in the scale of reality as it can not fully affect us. It can not be touched and therefore can not be considered truly real.

For some, the virtual world is a place to momentarily escape reality, others, fear that it will replace it completely. For us there is no conflict between virtual and real worlds, together they create a continuum of mixed realities.

How we see it, is that we constantly perform complex maneuvers to navigate these overlapped realities. We adapt to these technological extensions and we coexist with them, they shape our perception and relationship with others.

Insider explores how this mix of realities affect our bodies and our sense of being present. During the performance, the choices of each viewer, create a particular way of investigating and experiencing this proposed world.
