SEASONS - a ScreenStage Poem
SEASONS is an intermedial dance performance in which perceptions of time and space, the real and the virtual, are expanded in a story of love, loss and time.
A 5-chapter 'non-story', within which each character’s ‘story’ is told through the metaphor of the circular and ever-changing sensation of time. The characters’ narratives embody a continuity between the human and the digital, extending the human sensorium by virtuality.
The work invites the audience to dwell and be immersed in the poetics of the intermedial narrative. But also, to reflect upon the perception of mediation by engaging in a perceptual conundrum.
