A story of the self and its double, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s play William Wilson, is told in this dance performance. A game in which different parts of human personality affect and direct the protagonists in the struggle of the self to recognise its diverse sides. During the act, two individuals play with their reflection, bridging the gap between the face and its reflection, between light and shade, between the one who is watching and the one who is being watched.
The immersive installation, designed by V.I.P.A., is used as an architectural metaphor, highlighting the very elements of space; the surface and the projection, to address that the boundaries and lines we have for long kept on drawing within ourselves of who we are and what we can do is a perception of the mind and a result of a reflection.
