Will You Stay and Watch Me Dying

Will you stay and watch me dying is an exploration of theatre through trans-media performance installation which focuses on the interaction between live performance and media elements.

The performance examines the possibilities of transmedial post-traumatic theatre, seeking to provide new perspectives in the area of performative and visual arts and their interaction with multimedia technologies. This performance attempts to investigate how the medium of theatre addresses mechanisms of violence and power, and the role of sacrifice within them; the ambivalence of love and hate; the trauma of separation and loneliness in the face of death; the dark and cruel side of human nature, displaced beyond humanity; injustice and guilt, which cannot be clearly defined; and the unspeakable loss inscribed, at times, within love. A sense of injustice and guilt forms at this unbreakable weave, which combines the executioner and the victim, whose functions are not exhausted in a single dramatic act, but begin an avalanche of ambivalent attitudes and feelings which are never a matter of only a single individual. Such issues ties strongly to the post traumatic holocaust experience phenomena of witnessing and bystanding, subjecting the issues of sacrifice and otherness to performance; at the same time depicting unbearable suffering, which concerns not only the victims but also those who are linked to it, and those who face it.
