About the work

My SOULty

Bombarded with bursts of information and out-of-context images, we are constantly producing endless forms of performance and self-portrayal, through variant social media, possessed by them, we experience these images as a part of the real, natural world.
In ‘My SOULty’ the dancers wear their facial expressions as if they are wearing a mask. Their smiles, cries and laughs are simply, shapes and sounds. Though a mask is not only a disguise which hides a true self with its fakery, it reveals a true desire, fantasy and passion. Thus, the image and the body are experienced as a multilayered site that could be endlessly peeled in search of empathy and authenticity.
During these times, when a constant unified truth does not exist, perhaps all that is left is to experience the stage, as a place where magic takes place and to embrace the transformative falsehood of the performance.
