The feeling of being trapped is a currently intense psychological and existential experience. "Essence of Disappearance" is a performance that penetrates the fear of global crisis and physical isolation and sets in motion the disappearance of time and the release from space. In the form of a sound ritual, the performance contrasts generative light systems as an expression of the aggression of domination. The performance experiments with the hierarchical power of the dictates of space over the human body. With the complete connection of artist and generative medium, a new practice of ritual is anticipated in the current turbulences we live in today.
