Máquina Êxtase

by Maikon K

Performance art is the perversion of the body.

In this solo piece, Maikon K investigates the state of ecstasy as a dissolution of human identity, a body experience that breaks the boundaries of social conventions and moral codes. Ecstasy is one of the great taboos of our societies: regulated and controlled, it is a promise that is never fulfilled, contained in every product on sale, in the speeches of political and religious leaders, in the sex apps, in advertising, in aesthetics. Starting from immobility and a multifocal gaze, the performer activates a strange presence that modulates interior and exterior, control and uncontrol, drunkenness and intensity.
