FACE T(W)O addresses the discourse between digital and analog worlds.

Both aspects shape our lives and are part of our reality.

Inspired by this, the performance is designed from multiple perspectives, offering the audience a unique opportunity to experience the performance from different viewpoints.

An oversized mirror creates surprising impressions where the orientation of above and below, inside and outside, and real and virtual worlds are blurred.

FACE T(W)O was developed in collaboration with the young European dance ensemble. It provides insights into the numerous possibilities and pitfalls arising from the interaction and tension between digital and analog existence, expressed physically through high-level, urban dance.

THE MIRROR
The image of the mirror has been an integral part of European literature since antiquity. Its symbolism has undergone many changes and interpretations in the course of European history. As motif of the Doppelgänger, self-encounter, self-knowledge, fractured identity, reflection, vanity, mirror as gateway and passage into another world… In times of the internet, reflections of one’s own click behaviour play an increasingly important role (echo bubbles etc.). The metaverse promises freedom and a better world that is safer than our mundane analogue lives. It promises connection. Don’t we all want to be in contact with others?

At first glance, Antilia appears to be a classic circus arena where five artists perform their acts in rotation. Upon closer acquaintance, it is much more than that. It is a collective, a community that seeks to explore the relationship between the artist and the organizer, between the artwork and the audience, as they travel with a touring circus arena in Europe.

In Antilia, you can experience, among others:

Crazy Heart by Selvaggia Mezzapesa (IT)

An aerial performance from the heart.
Between acrobatics and dexterity in the air and beyond, Selvaggia will take us through the different stages of love, and through her heart, she will guide us into a poetic universe, where we can dream, interact and get excited with her.
