EMOTICONS

Hiding the sadness behind an emoticon is sexy? Breaking the certainties is sexy.

Dissolving the essence in the words is sexy? The right emoticons are terribly sexy.

Show themselves is still sexy? Destroying a smiley could be very dangerous.

 

Two performers stay in a common and frontal space. They can stay in contact only by computer. They can speak only through a computer, writing to each other through a chat. Their life is on chat. On the computer screen is written their biografy. Their fragmentary, discontinued and slowly conversations build a narration, an than a lot of stories, a lot of characters, personalities and moods. Their story are dialing by images, sounds and actions, and words. They are only in their own space isolated. It happens that what they do is different from what they write. They are looking for a relationship. We ask ourselves about parallel realities created by reality and chat. We observe and they slowly take shape. 

Exploring a site in constant flux of layers, we discover an area of attitudes and human vices. Here languages and emotional states cross the air, hidden behind the filter of a "not reality". It weaved its web creating new profiles. We play with this game. We simplifying the languace making it universal.

This is a study on the possibility to photograph identities, relationships and profiles in the internet time, where a smiley could be more interesting than a forced and noisy laugh.

A survey on the attitudes, ideologies, vices spasmodically hidden behind the filter of what could be but is not. Break the mirror of narcissus contemporaries who fall in love the idea of their image and not the authentic image of themself. A study that tries to photograph the new frontier of sexuality in the days of the internet where a yellow smiley can become much more interesting than a forced smile noisily.

EMOTICONS

Varizioni sul tema delle emozioni in digitale

Un uomo e una donna, abiti casual, in uno spazio comune divisi da un muro immaginario. Utilizzano un computer per comunicare, scrivendosi l'un l'altra attraverso chat. La loro vita è in chat. Sono soli nel proprio spazio appartato e scrivono. Creano caratteri, simulano personalità, si raccontano segreti, vivendo a volte situazioni diverse da ciò che digitano sul computer. La loro relazione vive sulla distanza e si materializza nei discorsi in chat. Le loro identità si mischiano e la loro storia si sussegue lasciando sul finale la possibilità di capire se la relazione sia può concreta nel reale o nella realtà virtuale.

Esploriamo la chat come luogo in continuo mutamento nella moltiplicazione di linguaggi e stati emotivi. Indaghiamo sugli atteggiamenti e le discontinue storie istantanee nascoste dietro il filtro del web. Moltiplichiamo la realtà creando nuovi profili. Esploriamo un linguaggio istantaneo, breve, metaforico e allo stesso tempo crudelmente concreto.

German version

Die Traurigkeit hinter einem Emoticon verbergen…Das Sein im Wort auflösen...ist das sexy?

Eine bildhafte Performance über die Emotionen hinter der scheinbar coolen Chat-Sprache der Cyber-Space-Generation.

Wo die Ebenen des Virtuellen und des Realen sich überschneiden, stoßen wir in Bereiche vor, in denen wir Abründe des Menschen finden können.Hier kreuzen sich Sprache und emotionale Werte,verborgen hinter dem Deckmäntelchen der „Nicht-Realität“. Sie verweben sich im Web zu neuen Formen. AKR spielt dieses Spiel und vereinfacht die Sprache, macht sie universell.

Eine Studie über Identitäten, Beziehungen und Profile im Internetzeitalter, in dem ein Smiley interessanter sein kann als ein lautes, kräftiges echtes Lachen.

Mit vielen assoziativen szenischen Bildern und in gewohnt soundgewaltiger Form bringen AKR den Charme und den Sexappeal zeitgemäßer Internetsprache auf die pad-Bühne.

AKR beschäftigen sich mit den Schnittstellen von Imagination und der Realität menschlicher Erfahrung. Ihre Performances sind kaleidoskopartige, aus Elementen des Kinos, des Thaters und der Musik zusammengesetzte, audiovisuelle Ereignisse.

Von und mit: Domenico Catano, Maria Laura de Bardi und Pasquale Passaretti.

Licht: Jo Fish,

Ton: Akoros.
