ABOUT THE PROJECT
I WOKE UP DEAD is a project which brings together both visual and performing arts.
It calls for an active audience that participates in the characters' universe.
I WOKE UP DEAD an installation for two actresses.
Petra decides to die and is planning a big event to mark her leaving of this world . Patri, her best friend and artistic collaborator, helps her in this great final project: the opening night of a paper art installation, in which participants are invited to share in Petra’s last hour and celebrate life.
THE TEXT AND
THE ART INSTALLATION
The audience will go through four environments. In the first one there is a kind of stone and flora made out of paper located in the center
of the space will call upon nowhere. A transitional habitat between earth and sky.
The following space is a tunnel, a big botanical lamp set to lead the viewer in an immersive experience.
Finally a paper cave, the spot where Petra will sleep forever.
This installation leads to confusion about where are we and where
we are not.
