Talia De Vries (IL/BE): Masquerade
Masquerade is a work about the time that exists between image and sound, between body and voice. There is an abyss between them. An endless space where everything can happen. Through the de-synchronization and the separation of the body from its voice, we reveal the obscure and dense space that exists between what we see and what we hear.
