55‘ multimedia outdoor solo performance
Safar (from the Persian “travel”) is a physical theatre performance written and staged in different levels and
“…is the story of a long journey…
a travel, an escape, a hunting or a searching…
for what exactly we don‘t know… memory, dream or fairy tale…find out.”
With these projected words the piece begins in the “occupied” space. A traveler pulling a hand-cart loaded with suitcases arrives, following a flying bird-person projected onto the walls with her oversized camera. Introduced like a silent movie the show takes the audience into a seemingly past time, partly in cinema history, where they are asked to find out what this trip could mean for our protagonist and what connections it offers to their own journey.
With a mix of dance masks and puppetry, animation and video, in changing installations the show creates a poetic non-verbal language and transports the viewer into a magical world.
Mobile wireless media technology, such as a projector built into a mock-camera, mobile light sources and a mobile sound system built into suitcases, give the set a very stubborn, humorous and unusual touch.
