Description of the initial idea of the performance
The Phantom Limb performance, in its initial development phase, is about different layers of experience, emotions and reality that our relatedness to high-end digital technology creates. It explores, and experiments on, the emotional, psychological peculiarities, conscious and unconscious manipulations and hidden desires of this relation. Through performance, it aims to criticise and become aware of the effects of this relatedness in our contemporary lives.
Background to the idea
The project is part of Kammari Research Group’s theoretical research project Technology as Ideology.
The project began in a Duet-residency of The Buffer Fringe Festival, Nicosia in October 2018.
