By whom, what and how do we feel represented? In which fixed roles and with which basic characteristics do we perceive ourselves? This piece processes audio recordings in which people of different ages, different genders and with different social and geographical backgrounds respond. Through soundscape and performance, a kaleidoscope of monstrous beings is created: a private bestiary.
Concept, choreography and performance: Natasha Czertok
