Landscapes of I – Björn Säfsten
LANDSCAPES OF I
In the midst of a bright yellow scene built in the middle of the theater, the audience lands in a play between the real and the fake, the personal and the fictional. Björn Säfsten wants to challenge the perception of ourselves. Is there still something that can be called personal? What inner landscape do you go in and out of?
The work is occupied with memories, manners, reflexes, conscious and unconscious actions. A hike in the landscape of our self-awareness, or the lack of. A questioning of the wish to control how we present ourselves, playing with the uncertainty of a fixed reality.
With a blend of crisp details and humour the three performers highlight chosen images of themselves, constantly moving. From a number of interwoven solos, personal choreographic landscapes emerge.
