Playing with movement in reality and fiction.
Until what extent is the experience of a performance determined by the observer's point of view? In As It Fell, Marisa Cabal and Stav Yeini want to approach movement from different perspectives. They combine live performance and video to re-create space and evoke new layers of perception: they dissociate fragments out of the whole picture, refine or obscure parts of the scene or give emphasis to what would otherwise pass unnoticed.
In As It Fell, the filmed images function as an extension of the performer’s body and vice versa. Thus, movement is not only located in the body, it travels through the stage jumping from media to media. As It Fell provokes an active reflection on our position as observers of movement, performance, film and media; of our perception of reality through many filters of information.
