Lia Haraki / Yiannis Christofides
Skull is a piece on proximity. It is a performance of soundscapes and embodiments of characters taken from Cypriot society who experience distance in different ways. Familiarity with the death of contact seems comforting, in relation to its literal meaning. Through identification, caused by the fact that we are all coated skeletons that will one day be peeled off, the illusion of emotional connection is created.
Skull is a dive into the cranium of the soul.
