Dolores Bouckaert : the kindness of geometry
“Yes, and I personally met the devil at least three times face to face."
This musical performance focuses on a machine that apparently produces confusing near-death experiences and on a Rumanian singer that believes herself to be somewhere in between life and death. She's being watched by three dark figures from an intermediate world. They serve as her shadow, her guide, the personification of her demons, and as the engineers of the ecstatic experience machine. What in reality only lasts some hundreds of seconds, she perceives as eternity. Because of the repetitive character of her experience, every possible ending seems to be a return to the beginning. She runs through several phases from devotion, doubt, total obsession and ecstasy.
