Performance and Talk During a close encounter Joshua Serafin will perform excerpts of I.B. 99085 and Void and share his thoughts about the performances he is currently working on. The main focus in his recent creations is on various states of being. He is interested in the capacity to access and articulate memories, ideas, sensations, fantasies and desires and to embody these in a physical manifestation. He investigates how the internal process of perception and memory in relation to external impulses can resonate in physical and tactile images he identifies as personas or alter identities. Notions of the “ideal body” and “ideal identity” in relation to a dystopian future are key elements in his work. 18 Sep, 7 pm (doors open 6.30 pm)

Workshop The workshop aims at gaining consciousness of the entire body to design a physical composition that questions notions of the “ideal body” and “ideal identity”. Starting with a discussion, the workshop will focus on the idea of manipulating the body through an understanding of the desires and fantasies of the participants in relation to the context and environment they live in. The artist will propose tools to benefit the participant’s agency to explore the creation of a persona or alter identity. The workshop will end with a sharing of the created material. 17 Sep, 11 am– 5pm
