Solo Siento

by Arkadi Zaides and Shira Miasnik

Solo Siento is a collaboration of Arkadi Zaides with the video artist Shira Miasnik. It’s a work materializing a struggle in the search for inner peace, which utilizes dance, video and shadow. Live activating layers of shadows interacting with the real dancers’ shadow creates a multiple and controversial voice to each action.

‘‘Contrast. Freeze or frantic, both dilute the feel of craze.
Childish and authority, are mixing up, resulting in shadows of the self
Chopping inside, dialoguing with external pain, primal, patterned.
Aspiring for escape, for relief, for flow, the struggle visualizes itself as the vacant self, a collage of shadows animated, where the inner meets the real.
Finding a resolution in hovering only, for now.’’ (Shira Miasnik)
