An exciting exploration of the relationship between tactility and technology
In this short preview of Anastasia Guevel’s new solo, a plastic, almost erotic symbiosis arises between the performer on stage and her digital alter-ego. With her neck tangled in the cables of her headphones and her body plugged into a computer, she almost drowns in the slimy substance that flows from her own back. She tries to swim but nothing seems to be able to keep her on the surface.
She sinks peacefully into the depths, in the distance a voice full of questions: Do you prefer your left hand or your right hand? Which emoticon reminds you of your mother? Have you ever had sex with a computer? What’s that vibrating feeling in your pocket? Slime is an exciting exploration of the relationship between tactility and technology in post-digital times.
