Between the inside and the outside of a person, in this subtle, blurry border, we find a door and open it. A metaphysical, surreal journey begins, into the depths of the unconscious. "Incognitum" uses the language of contemporary dance, puppetry and cinematic illusions to explore the state of social isolation. What if loneliness were an opportunity? Concept Loneliness is the place where I am the stranger... - Luigi Pirandello This work is about an encounter - an encounter with one of the strangers who belong to us. Between the inside and the outside of a person, in this subtle, blurry border, I find a door, the door that could let out the deepest side of a person, and I open it. A metaphysical, surreal journey begins, through loops and turns into the depths of the unconscious. Into this neutral, primal, perfect world, abstract, absolute ideas can exist, metaphysical concepts become tangible, possibilities open up. The colourful reality of everyday life remains behind me, as the mind simplifies its search, and there, suspended in the nothingness between pain and pleasure, I get to know the stranger within me. This state of our times leads the individual to experience loneliness, with all the emotional facets it can bring. But what if loneliness were an opportunity? Incognitum explores isolation as a chance to reach the deepest part of ourselves: me and the stranger within me, explored through me as a performer and through the figure attached to my body. The loop, symbol of infinity, points to the fact that there cannot be 'only' one conclusion, because in reality everything that is completed is dead, finished. But the discovery of the many selves that are part of our person is infinite, remains eternal, like a continuous flow that some call 'soul', which we try in vain to fix in stable and defined forms. A work that is timeless in the truest sense of the word, in which the observer is not reflected in how he or she is on the outside, but in how he or she feels on the inside.
