The Reversed Alchemist: Figure 4 – 6


Production Details / Press Releases

»The Reversed Alchemist: Figure 4 – 6« is a choreographic ritual in three parts, an invitation to an alchemical process that seeks to transform perception instead of matter. Starting from the phenomenon of “information overload”, Ixchel Mendoza Hernández takes the audience on a choreographic journey through time and space, focusing her attention in particular on the relationship between sensory and cognitive experience. “The Reversed Alchemist: Figure 4 – 6” establishes a poetic link between information, knowledge and perception, reflecting on how our perception has changed over time and what consequences this has for the relationship between our body and our mind.
