The Human Knot

London / 2020-2021

It is a phenomenological truth that perception is an active action driven by intentionality, and therefore our understanding of reality becomes diversified. This goes so far as there is a  term called Rashamonn effect, which describes that if various eyewitnesses share the same story we know it is a lie.

The Human Knot is a documentation of the first person point of view in a shared experience. A team building exercise in which the performers move around each other trying to not fall apart, metaphorical of the ways we become entangled with one another.

During the performance each participant has been asked to stop filming when they think one minute has expired, capturing the differences in our perception of time.
