Unconsciously Done explores the psychosomatic experience of Fear.
This piece will examine the complex intricacies of the human condition when faced with situations outside our comfort zones which illicit the primal response of fear.
Unconsciously Done is a contemporary performance duet influenced by the highly-expressionistic movements of the horror genre canon, personal nightmares and private confessions. Escapism bleeds into surrealism as we explore dark corners, check under our beds and confront our inner demons. Accompanied by a brand-new composition and sound-scape, blending movement and theatrical conventions to create an atmospheric, sensorial performative work.
Choreographed in collaboration by Stephanie Pokoj & Kristian Santic Sound Designer Paul Young Photography Creative Commons
