In „We are soooo utopocalyptic“ i physically explore the term „utopocalyptic“ coined by poet Michael Heller: „that odd socio-political or cultural product, both fever and exacerbation, in which an individual is torn between idealized hopes and gnawing dread.“ Welcome to heaven and hell!

More concrete i´m interested in exploring emotions - the perceptual ability to experience states of being  - connected to our associations to utopia and apocalypse and the physical aesthetic (perception) of it. The work will be based on scores and improvisation.
