Science of Signs II: Oráculo
I am the reality of the world. The center of the circumference.
I am the part and the whole. I am the will established between Heaven and Earth.
My hands and feet are everywhere. I have heads and mouths everywhere.
I am nearer to you than yourself. Than your soul, than your breath.
I am knowledge, the knower, and the known.
I see all, I hear all. I am in all, and I am.
I have created perception in you only in order to be the object of My perception.
Translating sacred scriptures into contemporary stage directions, The progressive wave are forming unique dramaturgical modules to examine overlaps between ancient teachings.
Making use of written and signed languages, Oráculo is a journey into the mysterious, traveling between the now, the ancient and the futuristic.
After presenting Lights & Vessels at ID festival 2016, Oráculo is the second chapter in the The progressive wave’s performance trilogy Science of Signs. This theatric triptych is exploring the relations between science, performance and philosophy.
