How do we relate to an image and its narrative? What are the remains of the experience of watching a movie?
This work is an attempt to create new ways of perceiving a film and revealing the abstracted choreography of its image by conveying a direct physical response. The series “Twin Peaks” directed by David Lynch and Mark Frost in 1990 had a huge impact on the world of television. Also, it had a strong effect on me personally, however the only concrete aspect that remained with me was the colour red and a physical excitement. The remains of memory are fascinating to me because they reveal a character, a perception and an unconscious selection. The videos became an onstage score only truly revealed to the performers by computer screens turned away from the audience. Blurring the subject as well as the terms of behaviour can frustrate the spectator, can make them feel excluded, nonetheless, its power of intrigue is very strong. This is the magic of Twin Peaks interpreted in Red, coffee & fog.
