El eclipse de A

By its very title, El eclipse de A., Amaia openly declares her re-appropriation of Antonioni's film L'eclisse. The question that remains unanswered is: The eclipse of who?

Based on the relationship set up between a television viewer's 'real' life and the fiction unfolding on her TV screen, this work aims to question and disrupt the way time is transformed and defined within a filmed narrative, and the relationship between this narrative and everyday life on one hand, and an event and a subject that exist within the space and time of a stage work on the other.

In this performance, it appears that, rather than intersecting with space, time is transformed into concrete movements and creates a new order, rupturing the linearity of the film and questioning the action in a macabre race against causality.
