CLOUD_extended is a reflection on the politics of images and the media representation of bodies, organised around the concepts of duration and repetition: the performance, which takes place over a period of one and a half hours, is composed of three repetitions of approximately thirty minutes each; the audience can enter and exit between one and the other. The content is the same, but the performer’s body and spirit will not be the same between the first and the last repetition. The relationship with the violence of the images thus acquires a ritual character and is inscribed in the context of physical and mental fatigue, of the obstinacy of a prolonged stay on stage, acquiring a different strength and depth.
