DESOLATE DREAMS

2019

installation performance

She's as red as her urges.

He's as white as his mechanism fighting.

She's as blue as her thoughts wandering around.

They're as beautiful as the timeless dreams they share.

Desolate Dreams is an installation-performance researching the lonely identity. Does the individual still create an identity when they are alone?

Someones identity is shaped partly by the outside world: parents, siblings, friends all play a roll in the evolution of ones identity. What happens then when there is nobody to shape yours? Desolate Dreams asks this hypothetical question to its performers and its audience.  

Next to the formation of ones identity Pieter also questions how time is being perceived when one is alone in relation to how it's perceived together with others. Does it go slower or faster? Would the concept of time and the understanding of it passing still exist?

The three performers each embody one of the three personality aspects Freud analysed: the id, the ego and the superego. They take you on a journey into a desolate dreamworld searching for who they truly are.

Desolate Dreams was made for and performed at the MoMeNT-festival in Tongeren, Belgium.
