IMG_7363« In searching after human connection we’re projecting on the other characteristics according to their appearance, and according to our judgment. If I could remove any identifying detail which makes me who I am, and who you think I am, would we be able to share something real ?
In this performance I would like to present the social conditions created, while attempting to create with the viewers, human contact .
As I wear my Zentai suit, I’m taking off, « human features », such as: skin, face, eye contact etc. and contact only by physical manners, as I move in space.
As I move I mark my path with a tape which allows me to make a visible tangle allegory to the acquired behavior patterns (defenses, fears, preferences.) on the Path to forming an identity in an attempt to resolve myself from any sense of existential solitude »                Maya Arbel
