The 25th Hour

Another way of relating (yourself), another way of embracing an intimate voice, as if in the dead of night, at the 25th hour.

An artist or a scientist gives an interview in complete darkness. 

The interview is divided into three main sections of twenty minutes each, like a three-round fight. 

A song chosen by the interviewed artist or scientist is played between one section and the next (three songs in total).

 

This device is part of COSMOBLACK, a set of performances and encounters that take place in complete darkness. To enter COSMOBLACK is to live the scene by listening to it and to discover another attention to the works, a forgotten concentration, a depth of the senses that only the night knows. The place devoted to the gaze becomes a place of listening, the exposed body becomes a sensed body. What is usually given to see here is given to hear, in an intimacy conducive to confidence, to inner risk, to bareness, to radicality. A new way to go to the theater.
