Lighting that is minimal rather than minimalist. Hugo’s scenography enables the study of the spectator-performer relation of copresence in a dim setting, through which a dramaturgy of darkness emerges. Since obscurity is hard for the eye to sustain, the situation engenders a different understanding of what is real. The limited perception of the space and of the artist’s movement blurs the borders between materiality and optical illusion. If the action doesn’t exist and it is the eye that creates its own dance, is the creator choreographing the experience as much as the body? What if the dysfunction of the senses opens up an alternative to reality?
