Desiring Machines

What We Are Not; Dawn of the Desiring-Machines

Music and live sound
[2020]

Dance by Uri Shafir

We do not wish to tell you a story, but to practice our very existence in the world — a world in catastrophe, a world in repression, that dares to demand from us narratives of stability, unity, linearity. We try to practice what our dancing body has always known - that we have never been whole, and our survival plan has never been stable. We navigate the map of changes that are taking place in us, in the multiplicity of our identities - what we are, and what we are not, real and fictitious, organic and synthetic, and seek nothing but to relish a little more in the fantasy we may win.
