The electric Geisha @ for Overmorrow Immersive Theater, Berlin 2020
The electric Geisha is a charachter I created for Overmorrow Immersive Theater project hosted at Wilde Renate in the 2020. A ghostly entity, appearing and disappearing figure trapped in a futuristic scenario, changing between a broken doll and an unconventional geisha, human and sometimes mechanical, ethereal and ephemeral. Her movements suggest the idea of an hologram streamed from the future, whose connection is sometimes interrupted and disturbed. She is welcoming the visitors hiding behind her fan and entertaining them with her gaze and whispered words, a sometimes delicate, sometimes grotesque dance and small rituals made of messages written on paper, which audience will receive.
