Sidney Leoni & Luis Miguel Félix
War of fictions
In War of Fictions performers embody a series of physical and emotional states to produce experiential and kinesthetic environments. They create and perform within fictional atmospheres where their actions, figures and movements suggest particular ways of relating to space, time, gravity/weight, imagery and social behaviours.
War of Fictions proposes a journey where the performers’ and the audience’s bodies are considered in all their potentiality to sense and navigate an environment where anything is possible, where ephemeral scenographies composed of the spectrum of sensory movements such as sounds, smells, lights, temperature fluctuations and touches, also take part in this fictional machinery.
